A PLAN to turn nine apartments in Manningham into a mosque has been given the go ahead.

The self-contained apartments in Parkfield Road (pictured) will now be turned into a place of worship.

When the application was first submitted, Bradford Council's Environmental Health department raised some concerns about noise.

It recommended a condition be imposed prohibiting the call to prayer through amplification.

It was also requested a noise survey be submitted.

A report says: "The noise survey establishes to the satisfaction of the council's Environmental Health Officer that the use can occur without giving rise to unacceptable implications for neighbouring amenity.

"This is subject to no amplified external noise and the improvements to the boundary treatment, specifically to the northern boundary.

"Conditions will be imposed in this regard, and the agent has confirmed agreement."

The condition stipulates: "There shall be no amplified external noise at the application premises."

The mosque is relocating from its current location nearby at Woodview, North Avenue.
