Proposed Mosque - Guidance on Making Representation to the Public Inquiry

Broughton Parish Council has published guidance on submitting how to make representation (submit a statement) in relation to the proposed Place of Worship in Broughton, which has been 'called in' by the Planning Inspectorate.  

The document is intended to assist objectors in the Public Inquiry. It consists of:

  1. Reasons Preston Council gave initially for refusal before changing their mind.
  2. Recommendation Preston Council then gave for being "minded to approve" the application.
  3. Note on the best way to improve the chances of a positive outcome at Public Inquiry.
  4. How to approach the technical issues at the inquiry.

Preston Council were minded to approve the application, but it was ‘called in’ by Central Government for a decision. This means the developer and Preston Council will both argue the development should go ahead. The Parish Council and other objectors will argue otherwise.

The guidance document can be downloaded by clicking on this link.

The case number is 3296374.
