Proposals to extend an Armley mosque have been approved by Leeds City Council planners.
Central Jamia Mosque has successfully applied to add a classroom, toilet and two body wash areas in single and two-storey side and rear extensions to its building in Brooklyn Terrace.
A council officer’s report said the character of the Armley Conservation Area would not be affected by the ‘lower scale’ additions and said the proposals would not create more demand for parking.
“The mosque has been well established for a number of years on this site and these relatively modest extensions will further underpin the site as a sustainably positioned and well-placed community facility,” the report added.
The application was submitted by the mosque’s Chaudhry Mohammad Arshad and the plans can be viewed in full here.
