Have your say

MEMBERS of Chipping Norton’s Islamic community have spoken of their delight after plans to open a small mosque in the town were approved by West Oxfordshire District Council (WODC).

An application to convert a small retail unit in West Street into a place of worship was carried by WODC’s Uplands Area Planning Committee on Monday.

It followed a long campaign by Chipping Norton town councillor Tahirul Hasan and other members of west Oxfordshire’s Islamic community to find a permanent home for their daily prayers.
