Churchill må vende sig i sin grav.

This mosque makes a statement, and is intended to make a statement, about the Muslim presence in Britain — its permanence, its influence, and its relationship to the non-Muslim community. And is anyone going to be working to ensure that jihad and Islamic supremacism aren’t preached there? Don’t be Islamophobic!

Plans for the construction of a five-storey building which will be one of London’s biggest mosques have been given the go-ahead.

Harrow Central Mosque will serve Muslim worshippers from across north London when it is built on Station Road. The designs include a 40m-high minaret, a gym, a crèche and a café within the 5,745 square metre development.

It is expected to open next year after Harrow Council approved changes to the original plans, which were passed in June 2000.

The planning committee has imposed conditions on the build, which include that a house on Station Road currently being used as the mosque is turned into affordable housing. The Mosque builders will also pay £15,000 towards controlled parking measures in Rosslyn Crescent.

Councillor Marilyn Ashton, cabinet member for planning, development and enterprise, said: “This is a very significant building on Harrow’s skyline and while permission was given some while ago, it was important we regularised changes that had been made. I’m pleased that we have been able to give formal permission while at the same time balancing that with the views of local residents.”
