Mosque's planned minaret 'out of place', say planners
PLANS for a minaret over a mosque in a Rotherham street have been thrown out.
Planners said the proposal for the mosque on Milton Road, Eastwood, would be inappropriate in the traditional terraced street.
The minaret would have been slightly taller than surrounding chimneys and applicant Mohammed NajiB said it would define the function of the building and allow more light into the upstairs prayer hall.
