(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Plans for Cambridge's first purpose-built mosque have been approved by the city council.
The £15m complex will be constructed on Mill Road and is expected to cater for up to 1,000 worshippers.
Residents expressed concern about parking and traffic congestion in the busy residential and shopping street.
However the Muslim Academic Trust, which submitted the plans, said car parking was included and many visitors would cycle or walk.
Last year, anonymous leaflets were posted through doors of houses close to the proposed site, urging people to object to the mosque on grounds of potential congestion.
