Plans to turn Sharoe Green House neuro-rehabilitation centre into an education centre have been approved.


The site became a community centre in 2015, and will now be changed into an Islamic school.

The current building, which is opposite the Masjid-e-Salaam mosque, is set to be demolished and replaced with a purpose-built three-storey community centre.

The ground floor will be a nursery, hall space and catering area and classroom facilities, whilst the first floor will provide additional hall space and classrooms, with further classrooms on the second floor.

Outside there will be a children’s play area and 44 new car parking spaces, taking the total to 104.

The application by Cassidy + Ashton has been approved if it meets conditions such as laying out car parking prior to occupation.
