'You'll hardly see anyone there': Trafford Scientology Church plans resurrected - 2018-06-16
In 2007, a 'change of use' application was submitted to the council to transform the Church Road landmark into an Ideal Org: a super-church described by the organisation as providing "the full services of Scientology religion to its parishioners, while also serving the community with social betterment and outreach programs."
However, these were later withdrawn, and no further plans were put forward until this year.
Minor renovation work began in February, when workers were spotted repairing the boundary fence. The new plans include extensive exterior work such as re-roofing and the replacement of brickwork and windows.
