Save The Islamic Academy of Manchester

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.

It has served the residents of Ardwick, the city centre and university students for 40 years as a place of worship and learning. We now need your help to stop the property developers from converting a house of worship into student flats.

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.

    I am a resident in Airwick and am Iam 22 years old resident in Airwick and am eager to save the mosque which in my opinion is not fair, this is the place where I always go to with my 4 sisters to worship God since we were young and until now we socialise with our friends and relatives, I would love the building to stay as a place of worship and community centre for us and for the future generation
