House is to be turned into Islamic centre
A HOUSE will be converted into an Islamic prayer facility — despite objections by Bolton’s biggest social landlord.
Bolton Council’s planning committee approved proposals by Great Lever Welfare Youth Trust to convert a house in Paulham Street, Harper Green, and build an extension to establish a community education and resource centre.
The facility will have two full-time staff and four part-time employees and has permission to open between 4am and midnight to reflect Islamic prayer times.
