Plans to turn a former Leicester scout hut in to an Islamic centre have been put out to consultation.
Islamic charity the As-Salaam Trust want take over the hut at Thurnby Lodge but have faced sustained opposition.
Some campaigners want the disused property to be developed for use by the wider community.
Now the city council wants residents to make a decision on the future of the hut and the nearby Raven Centre. A final decision is due in January.
A number of protests have taken place at the site and a 1,500-strong petition opposing the move was handed to the council.
