Muslim community centre plan for former Rotherham pub
PLANS have been submitted to turn a former Rotherham pub into a mosque and youth centre.
Applicant Labib Ahmed wants to turn the Shakespeare Inn, which has been closed in 2009, into a community base and place of worship.
Planning documents say the building, on Eldon Road, could open from the early hours until 11.30pm, depending on prayer times.
Rotherham Borough Council is expected to make a decision on the plans next month.
