Help Save the House of God (The Islamic Academy of Manchester). It is to be taken away from a religious organisation and given to a commercial property developer.
We strongly oppose the planning application (02531/FO/2013/N2 and 102532/LO/2013/N2 |) which has been submitted by Church Converts to MCC to redevelop the Islamic Academy into flats. We wish for this historical building (The Islamic Academy of Manchester) to remain as a place of worship, educational and community centre. We strongly oppose the plans to convert the place of worship into apartments. We wish for this building to remain as a place of worship and a community centre for future generations.

As a visitor to manchester from preston, lancs, for its food and shopping i regularly use this islamic centre for prayers whilst travelling due to its convenient location and close proximity to city. It would be a real shame for locals and visitors alike to loose this great facility for more apartments which are found in abudnance nearby, whilst not having anything of the current facility in close proximity.
Please sincerely reconsider the proposal and keep the current facility.
I am a visiting student and its important for me and surely for many more like me to have a mosque near the university.
Do not change status of a place of solace and worship for the community
