The Masjid-E-Umar mosque has put in a planning application to demolish the existing mosque, in buildings at 304-306 Barnsley Road, and to replace it with a three storey, purposed built mosque and madressa with a minaret and dome.
The proposed plans show underground basement parking for ten cars, a large prayer room and hall on the ground floor, with classrooms on the first and second floors.
Comments have been posted on the Council’s planning website, many in support of the proposals, but some residents fear continuing parking problems, which have been a concern at the existing mosque.
For more information about the plans or to add your comments visit the Council’s website.
The application reference is 07/01306/FUL.
