Skegness Mosque and community centre prayers answered

The authority’s planning committee voted in favour of Skegness Central Mosque Group’s plans, including four self-contained flats, which will be built next to the former Methodist Chapel on Roman Bank.

Hawzah News Agency - ( Lincolnshire - UK) - East Lindsey District Councillors have approved plans to build Skegness’ first mosque and community centre, despite concerns from nearby residents over parking.

The authority’s planning committee voted in favour of Skegness Central Mosque Group’s plans, including four self-contained flats, which will be built next to the former Methodist Chapel on Roman Bank.

Applicant Naseer Iqbal told councillors he had purchased the site after more than 10 years with no interest and called it a “blot on the landscape”.

He said the new centre would serve all people, both Muslim and the local community, with part of the hall available to rent for public events.

He told councillors: “We are a small, peaceful community that needs a place to worship.”
