A new mosque is planned in the greater East Reading area. The text below has been taken from the Alexandra Road mosque's website:
"The New Aisha Masjid & Islamic Centre
Donations are urgently needed to secure the new building proposal to offer the Muslim Community a new Mosque.You may be aware of the golden opportunity to purchase the ‘Amdocs Building’ to convert into a new Masjid and Islamic Centre. This building is situated on the junction of the A4 and A329M on the Suttons Business Park roundabout."
I believe leaflets are being distributed and that there is a pre-planning application consultation meeting on Saturday, but I need to confirm the precise details. Once I have them I will post them at the bottom.
I have had a resident contact me asking what this means for a mosque at Green Road, and the honest answer to this is I don't know. I do know though that a number of different groups were interested in a mosque on the Green Road site so my best guess is that there is still interest in this project. The Council's position is unclear though.
