A Doncaster mosque has been given the go-ahead to extend and build a car park on land near the town centre.

Doncaster Council’s planning committee has given the green light to the proposal to build the 35 space car park, purely for the use of worshippers at Hyde Park’s Jamal Mosque, on open land off Bentinck Close.

The car park, which had previously been rejected by planners, will be surrounded by a two metre high fence and will be built on a grassed area between the mosque and Trafford Way.

Councillors heard there had been seven letters opposing the car park with 36 in support as well as nearly 270 people supporting the proposal with a petition.
