What to say when you comment.

The proposed development is far too large and overbearing in terms of mass and scale.

The proposed development does not match local architecture and construction materials.

The proposed development does not promote or enhance local character and distinctiveness.

The proposed development has insufficient onsite parking to accommodate the 500 car users (based on a 1200 capacity and a 47% modal share). This will force worshipers to park in nearby residential streets (mainly Rigby Court and Ninehouse Lane)  affecting highway safety and traffic flow.

The proposed development has insufficient onsite parking to accommodate the 500 car users (based on a 1200 capacity and a 47% modal share). This will force worshipers to park in nearby residential streets  (mainly Rigby Court and Ninehouse Lane), and cause noise and disturbance to the residential amenity.

The need for the proposed development is not proven , this is an expansion not a replacement for the existing mosque.

  1. This is badly thought through. I pity the residents who will be badly affected by the lack of parking for such a large building. This would not be allowed where l live. Property values will plummet and many put into negative equity. Times are tough enough for people already, without having such worries and unfair disruption on such a regular basis added to their lives.
