A NEW £2 million mosque could be built in York under plans unveiled by the city’s Muslim community.

The York Mosque And Islamic Centre wants to replace its current building in Bull Lane because it is becoming too small to accommodate the growing number of people attending its main prayer times.

The design of the new mosque, which would be built on the same site off Lawrence Street, includes a small central dome flanked by two minarets, a prayer hall, classroom, library and indoor community hall which children will be able to use for sporting activities. There would be no calls to prayer or any other amplified sound from the building.
