Muslim prayer centre sparks parking fears

A new Muslim prayer centre planned for a the site of a former register office in Shrewsbury would cause huge parking problems, according to residents.

People living near Shirehall have raised fears about congestion and safety should the plans for Column Lodge in Preston Street get the go-ahead. Up to 50 people could use the building at peak times according to a planning report – despite there only being three parking spaces on the site.

Shropshire Council sold the former school to the Shropshire Bangladesh Welfare Society for £215,000. Society members now want to turn the building into a Muslim prayer centre and community room and plans have been submitted to change its use to a day care centre and place of worship.
