marulan islamic cemetery protestThe Goulburn Post reports Marulan Action Group, formed last year, hosted a protest some 130 strong in Belmore Park on Sunday against the proposal of an  Islamic cemetery at Marulan.  Its proponents have pledged to submit a modified development application next month.

It comes one year after the original DA was lodged and amid growing community discontent.

The protest group has long argued the application was inadequate and the proposal not in the public interest. More recently the stoush finished up in court, as reported here.

The Al Mabarrat Benevolent Society, based in Sydney, wants to build a 3500 plot cemetery and prayer hall on a 329-hectare property, just north of Marulan. It would be located near the junction of Highland Way and the Hume Highway.
