Buddhist Community Centre UK started this petition to Head of Democratic Services and

The Buddhist Community Centre UK (BCCUK) was founded in 2007 with a vision to establish a monastery to serve the growing Buddhist Community in the Southeast region of the United Kingdom. After several years of hard work, dedication and fund-raising activities by our dedicated committee members, a former social club was purchased and transformed into a traditional monastery.

Since the inception of the monastery, the current location was identified as a prime location due to the car park next to it. Over the years, the Parsons Barracks car park has been a very vital part of our establishment here at Aldershot. Everyday hundreds of devotees come from all parts of the UK to visit the monastery and they use the car park for parking at their convenience. We can't think of how much inconvenience it would add if we lose the car park at all.

Our community members use this monastery to conduct various rituals and pujas throughout the year. And some ceremonies we organise demand the function to be organised outside and when this happens our functions are really loud, and it would disturb others if this site would be used for any residential purpose.

This monastery is also used for organising rituals in regard to funerals. We do want to make you aware that some of these are heart breaking to watch and would easily make someone sad when around.

I couldn't emphasise more how much inconvenience it would add to us and the dwellers of the said car park in future. It would be best of our interest if the said car park is sold to us.
