Some more details of this proposal in tonights Gazette


Extension plan for Middlesbrough mosque
by Sandy McKenzie, Evening Gazette Aug 20


RELIGIOUS leaders hope to better welcome international students and keep youngsters occupied by building a major extension to their mosque.

They are seeking planning consent for work to be carried out at the Central Mosque in Middlesbrough.

Plans would see facilities expand considerably at the Southfield Road mosque - which opened in 1998 and is one of five in the town.

The proposed five-storey building, designed by Don McCabe of BIM Architectural Services in Saltburn, would feature a dome on the roof and car parking on the ground floor.


Wajid Malik, acting imam at the mosque, said the extension would be built over the existing car park.

But, because parking in the area remains a big issue, it has been decided to maintain spaces in the new development.

The whole project would cost a seven-figure sum and money would be raised from the local community.

And Mr Malik said the aim of the scheme was to provide much-needed community facilities.

Here is a 'clearer' version of the picture (of the appearance of the proposed finished new Mosque) that I posted on July 25th, at Post 2 . . .

It looks horrible, like some 70s office block with a little dome on it, as most mosques seem to.

We wouldnt settle for this half-arsed architecture for a Church, nor should we for a mosque.

Why cant they put some imagination into it, like the beautiful Gurdwara temple in Bedford, i dont know.

I may be posting this in the wrong thread - but I thought the comparison might be useful. This is the Gazette's item on a proposed Islamic Centre for Whinney Banks:
http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/te...banks-11400915

I know there's a slight element of flying a kite as the land hasn't been purchased. From what little we can see it looks like a high quality design.

I think the key to a project like this would be that the leaders of it are open in they're approach and responsive to the local community - that it shouldn't feel like something separate but rather a community asset. If recreational land is lost and local people feel shut out it could breed resentment, whereas if the centre benefits everyone there could be a different feeling about it.

I'm stretching the purpose of this thread slightly but I wanted to applaud this initiative:
---
Mosque in Middlesbrough opens its doors and offers tea and tours to non-Islam visitors
The Jamia Masjid mosque provided a hot meal to some of the most vulnerable members of the community
http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/te...ffers-12560231
---

I've felt for sometime that to be accepted by the broader community mosques need to feel like community assets. Church halls have adapted to become centres for community services' such as youth clubs and training courses and I hope the leadership in the mosques will find more opportunities to engage more broadly.
