cletus Posted June 24, 2009 Share Posted June 24, 2009 I had an interesting conversation with a lady today, who asked me "how many mosques i think there are in Blackburn?" I said 15-20.....no 25.......no 35.......no The lady told me that there are 1500 'registered' mosques in Blackburn. I told her i thought it was rubbish, but she went on to tell me that Blackburn with Darwen Council have 1500 registered mosques within the borough. (she said this is from a council source) "There`s obviously a catch?" i asked. "yes there is" replied the woman "if you convert a room into a prayer room, you can register it as a mini mosque......thus enabling you to claim council tax reduction on the property". She says a lot of the properties pay nearly zero council tax because of this loop-hole. So...... 1...Does anybody know if this is true? 2...if so, can any religion convert a room? 3...how easy is it to claim a council tax reduction for this?
