Former Blackburn pub to be converted to Islamic centre
3:39pm Monday 21st February 2011
The Citizen: PLANS to convert a former pub to an Islamic education centre have been approved – to the dismay of some neighbours.
The former Dog Inn, on the corner of Revidge Road and Lynwood Road, Blackburn, will now become an ‘education and cultural centre’ and madrassa.
Some residents opposed the plans, and police were reported to have ‘serious concerns’ about road safety.
Opponents submitted a 52-signature petition to Blackburn with Darwen Council planning committee to make their case, claiming parking would be a problem, and parents dropping off youngsters by car would create a dangerous level of traffic.
Planning chiefs said it was impossible to know how heavy the traffic would be until the centre was in use, so granted a 12-month temporary permission.
UPDATE: An EDL Buck informs the TT that :
