Plans to build a Mosque and Madressa

Mosque Plans

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.

I am a resident of burngreav area and I am disgusted that a mosque is aloud to apply for planning permission. The reason being that they have not sorted out problem with parking along earl Marshall Road and council don’t seem to be bothered about it. Parking has been a massive problem since the masjid umar opened it because traffic is being blocked by silly arrogant drivers. Number of times the council have been told about the problem but it falls on deaf ears. Fellow council for the local area are more interested about making a name for them self then putting certain issues first.
