We have previously discussed the cafe owner who was ordered to remove the exhaust fan, here. The fan was ordered removed because it blew bacon odors that were offensive to Muslims.
Seems like another story of accommodation, but …
From the website of the Central Stockport Area Committee we find a list of 14 issues to be discussed. Number 4 is:
A retrospective Planning application (DC044716) for the retention of extraction vent to front of shop at 159 Adswood Road, Cale Green – recommendation grant.
Kind of boring, but a neighbor, Graham Webb-Lee, stated that the exhaust fan was only 12 inches from his front door and complained that the smell is getting in his clothes. He stated his daughter has an eating disorder. He also stated that his Muslim friends don’t want to come over because of the smell.
Guess which complaint made it to the headline in the Daily Mail article?
