Camberley mosque

#1
Only just clocked this. Stick:

282 London Rd, Camberley, Surrey GU15 3JP

into Google Maps satellite view, zoom out a bit and see what pops up.

Listed building within Conservation area approved (against all advice) for demolition and to be replaced by a not very subtle Mosque complete with domed roof and two 100ft tall minarets: all 400 yds from parade ground.

Council now trying to backtrack on procedural grounds but a complete clusterfcuk.

IIRC its next to the TA Centre.

Can't get too exited about this sort of thing provided that they don't plan to make a noise and frighten the horses. If people are stupid enough to spend their money on this crap that's their lookout. I look forward to a time when religion in all its evil forms is consigned to the dustbin of history.

I don't think the Sovereign's Parade is going to be interupted by the sound of the call to prayer... the church just down the road is higher than 100ft!

All they want to do is replace on old normal looking building that is used as a place of worship with a more traditional design (place of worship = will get it)

That place is the reason that the old cinema/snooker hall opposite it wasnt turned into lap dancing club in 2007!

Been on local telly here over the last year. AIUI even MoD has objected to it on security grounds.

I don't think there is any need to worry. Any adherents to the religion of peace living in Camberley are probably well minted and just as likely to be Conservative party members and Rotarians. I don't think there will be a bomb factory or terrorist training school in the basement.

But....A mosque in Camberley? Who'd have thought that would ever happen?

Camberley deserves to have a Mosque. It's an over-rated shiithole! :)

That should bring housing prices down a bit!!!! :D

Maybe we could build the mosque, and then get the Israelis to build a wall around it. That should please everyone.
Only if you then fill it to the brim with pig urine!!

Public meeting earlier tonight. Council voted to refuse planning permission.
Any idea on what grounds?
I read the MoD didn't mind provided access to the minarets was limited to essential maintenance.

The call to prayer would be a welcome break in routine for our future military thinkers.

God knows, the bells of Church and the oral farts of our Commons Leaders haven't been.

Isnt the picture:



Of the Army Medical Directorate? I know its in the grounds of the RMAS but surely a pic of the New or Old College would have been better.

You're clearly not familiar with Camberley. Parts of the town now resemble Dharavi.
