There’s a planning application coming up for a hearing, appreciate some advice.
It’s it possible to speak in favour of an application as a local resident?
The application is for a local mosque to serve the regional Muslim community. I wouldn’t normally give a shit about this type of thing but my ire is well and truly up. The local knuckle draggers have a campaign to oppose the planning and you can imagine their motivation. Britain First and the BNP are taking an interest. Suffice to say I have no objections and think it only reasonable that local Muslims have a place of worship.
At the planning meeting I just want to make it clear that those who oppose it don’t speak for everyone, not by a country mile.
If I am entitled to make a statement in support, is there a process to follow, any advice appreciated.
