Slam dunk in Maidenhead

 

Last night, Wednesday 3 August, the Maidenhead Planning Committee refused planning permission* for a £1.5 million Islamic Centre at the Citizens Advice Bureau, Holmanleaze, Maidenhead SL6 8AW**.

This was in spite of the Planning Officer’s recommendation that planning permission be granted.

The main reason for refusal was the parking situation, but we advanced two more arguments.

First, that this carbuncle would domineer the area and overlook its neighbours, particularly (surprise, surprise) the Church next door.

And second, that spreading Islamic doctrine is contrary to English law, so that the Council can no more authorise a mosque than it can a garage for you to sell stolen cars.

It’s not over yet. The other side will come back, and we need to keep the pressure up. But freedom went on the front foot last night, and we can feel good about that.

An unexpected evening: no beardy-weirdy flash mob, no howling burkas, just a quiet meeting in an English town hall, and the advance of Islam briefly halted.

  1. Congratulations!

    Do you have any feel for whether your words about the personal liability of the planning officers for allowing a building in which sedition and treason will be practiced had any effect?

    I commend you for that approach. You are, of course, 100% right and it’s a very powerful argument.

  2. @abc5000 How very ignorant of you to assume the people here commenting on this article have children running around causing bedlam. On all the Police mugshots, the massive majority of the rascals running riot were of black and Asian youth. You make out that Muslim parents are some how immune from rebellious children when they are not.
    Remember also that when you point your finger at people, you have three fingers pointing right back at you!
    I know from personal experience that the Muslim community do have their problems.You are describing a type of `apartheid Muslim community` that has no problems.You blind ignorant fool! Muslim parents,fix your kids. There you go, take that and think about what you are on about, silly person!

  3. I find it highly amusing that pamela is accusing someone of being ignorant when this entire website is fuelled by ignorance and misinformation lol
