Last year (2010) Al-Furqan IIC lodged an application for a planning permit at its current location (5 Wardale Road, Springvale South) as a Place of Assembly and Information Centre.
The idea was to have an information hub where people across south east of Melbourne would have an easy access to information about Islam.
As you know we had regular Jummuah and other prayers done on site as well as range of other activities such are Quran and Fiqh class, Madrasah, Ramadan activities etc.
On Monday night 28th March City of Greater Dandenong Council (henceforth CGDC) on its regular monthly meeting as per recommendation of CGD planning department they made the decision to refuse the permit on the grounds of parking, noise and safety.
This decision by CGDC has potential for financial, social and other implications for regular visitors and volunteers of Al-Furqan IIC as well as Al-Furqan IIC itself.
We demand that CGDC revise its decision and enable Al-Furqan IIC to continue to work and offer services to local community.
You can help by signing Petition of Support which is available in Al-Furqan IIC at 5 Wardale Road, Springvale South or writing Support Letter and dropping it or mailing it to us at the same address.
Please help us so we can continue helping others.
May Allah reward you for your consideration.
