A new police station in Accrington could be built on land next to a proposed £4million mosque.How….handy… *snigger*
Central ward Coun Allah Dad said: “This land was reserved for a mosque. The committee and the community still want it there and there is a demand and a need for it.And you’ll be just delighted by the presence of a police station right next door, won’t you?
“It was promised in 2009, the funding is there, but there have been delays. I think this is down to a lack of communication and a change in council control.
“We are waiting for an agreement to be put in place and I’m going to try and make sure it happens. ”
“We have only just found about the possible plans for a police station. People don’t want it there and we will campaign strongly against this. We are not against a police station, just the location. This land is reserved for the mosque.”Terrible, isn’t it, when ‘undesirables’ move in and think they own the place, start throwing their weight around and making demands?
