Save The Islamic Academy of Manchester

2,862 Signatures Goal: 3,000

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.

    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.

    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
