Makkah Mosque , Bolton – Update.

makkah

Following the council`s potentially illegal approval of the last application on this site in Bolton, we have a new application (which we will cover in a separate blog).

On 25/08/16 Bolton`s planning committee passed an application for  “ERECTION OF A MOSQUE AND COMMUNITY CENTRE” (ref 95548/15). This included a last minute revision to demolish the existing mosque, which was added to the conditions of the approval. This is of course, a material change and as such should have been referred back to the public for consultation.

Local residents quite rightly sought legal advice, and although there was a case to answer were unable to raise the funds necessary for a Judicial Review. Complaints to the council`s Standards Committee and the Local Government Ombudsman are live and ongoing. There have been angry protests already at council meetings !

The new application is an attempt by the applicants to head off any legal action, by including the demolition of the existing  building to the application.

Bolton Council are currently under the scrutiny of the Planning Advisory Service following an inquiry into practices at the Planning committee stage. A report is due in three weeks.

I see this as an assult on the british way of life there is no justification for this religion to consume the way of life,this is a christian way of life the values of the majority, why promote a way of life that is so diverse ritual slaugter of animals hidden faces behind a mask,sepperation of the sexes non acceptance of our laws on gay people, ignore the majority of what this country has fort for at the peril of the next civil war oh dear i might be a racist, but Muslims cant integrate or wont..
