Plans to turn a Walthamstow pub into a mosque have been submitted to Waltham Forest Council.
Ghulam Rabbani, of the Manchester-based Faizan-e-Islam Trust, has applied for change of use permission for the Waltham Oak in Lea Bridge Road, Walthamstow.
The plans include proposals for a community hall and two single-storey extensions at the rear.
Photographs appearing to show workmen from the trust gutting and renovating the interior of the building have been posted on website Facebook.com.
Residents have until February 7 to comment on the plans.
