Haredi neighborhood in London will not get planning rights

I guess this is for the best, recalling some of the distasteful acts the Haredis in that area tried to pull a few months ago:
Residents of Stamford Hill will not be able to have a direct say over planning rights because they cannot reach an agreement among themselves, Hackney Council has ruled.

Two opposing proposals for the Stamford Hill Neighbourhood Forum were rejected on the grounds that neither have received widespread support from the community and will do little to improve community tensions in the area.

The council instead set up an Area Action Plan to resolve the “major tensions” in the North Hackney community. A report said it would “bring together the two groups and formulate a vision which would unite rather than divide the community.”

The SHNF, composed of members from the UK’s largest ultra-orthodox Jewish Haredi community as well as non-Jewish members, was established in 2012 to grant planning rights to individuals and communities, capitalising on the Localism Act. The forum aims to enable the community to build extensions on houses and schools that the community needs to cater to its rapidly expanding population.

[...] According to Rosemary Sales, the Labour councillor for the area, a minority of individuals- often property developers within the Haredi community- have at times “adopted an attitude to existing planning rules that have caused friction with their neighbours.”
Tsk tsk. That is simply not good. And if any of those Haredis are living on welfare and not seeking jobs, then I can't feel sorry for them for not getting their demands approved. Their customs do not reflect well upon their reputation, so it's better not to grant them what they want now.
