Opposition to a proposed Hindu community centre at Boulters Lock will continue if its plans are resubmitted, a group of residents has said.
The Boulters Riverside Community Interest Company (CIC), which was formed to submit a rival bid for the site on council land in Lower Cookham Road, has criticised the Hindu Society’s bid.
The society withdrew its application earlier this month after the Environment Agency warned about flood risk and the Royal Borough’s highways department criticised ‘ambiguity’ about parking.
Last week, the society’s president, Chander Malhotra, vowed to return with an improved plan.
Mick Jarvis, chairman of Boulters Riverside CIC, said: “We know that the fight is not over yet by any means.
“These are fundamental objections that cannot be explained away.
“Combine them with serious flaws in other parts of the submission and we cannot believe the council would give its blessing to the scheme.”
