Protest against Blackburn 'terrace house mosque'
by Bill Jacobs
Councillors are set to tell a mosque in Blackburn to move out of a terrace house after objections from neighbours.
The town's MP Jack Straw has backed objectors to an application for retrospective planning consent for the place of worship above the Ashrafi Study Centre Madrassah, in Accrington Road, Audley.
He has told Blackburn with Darwen planning committee that using terraced houses as mosques was no longer necessary, or appropriate, to allow Muslims to practise their faith.
