How on earth do you know what the number of essential users are? Your accusation of abuse seems to be based on nothing but prejudice. I've never heard a single complaint about abuse of this system in relation to the Vihara.

There were 15 permits issued to the Vihara which now will cost an extra 12,000 per annum money which I'm sure they would prefer to be going to Nepal at the moment. If you take into account the building also operates as a community centre which hosts events for local schools and events, 15 seems a perfectly reasonable number of permits to have particularly when you consider some of them may be for vehicles which may have been sold or are only used rarely. The people who staff the centre during the day, caretaking staff and people who officiate at ceremonies will need permits. I presume there are also people based at the centre in a administrative capacity.

As far as I am aware Buddhist holy days are determined by the phases of the moon so, unlike for other religions, they tend to fall on days of the week when a CPZ is in operation.

This move by Ealing Council could potentially put the centre under threat. It wouldn't just be the cost of the permits. There is likely to be a loss of revenue because staff are unable to get to the centre to support outside events which I presume are a very important source of revenue.

If the centre becomes loss making the Buddhist community across London may decide that, given they don't have a particularly large representation in this area, it simply isn't worth financially subsidising the building. They may find it difficult to sell because it is listed and probably has some quite restrictive covenants so there is a real risk of it becoming a neglected badly maintained shell.

If you contrast this draconian move with Ealing Council's rather laissez-faire approach to parking by A2Dominion employees around central Ealing there is a clear double standard.
