Tremendous news from Essex, where South Woodford residents have again stopped plans to expand the Qur’ani Murkuz Trust in Mulberry Way.
This is the third application (and the second appeal to the Planning Inspectorate) !
The planning inspector said “I consider that the proposal would have a negative effect on the environmental and social roles of sustainability and that this would outweigh the limited economic benefit. As such, the proposal would not amount to sustainable development and does not benefit from the presumption in favour of sustainable development set out in Framework paragraph 14. Conclusion 20″.
The full decision can be viewed here (look at the decision doc):-
Congratulations to local residents, who have vowed to keep fighting. The applicants have already indicated that they submit another application.
Man the ramparts !
