We have noted recent speculation on Facebook and local blog sites regarding the proposed Brick Veil development in Broughton and the dimensions of the proposed structure.
We have contacted the architects for clarification and have received further and definitive information on the proposed design, as below:
The building as proposed extends to 12m in height and the minaret as it is currently designed extends to 30m in height. By way of comparison, the roof at Masjid-e-Salaam has a ridge height of some 13.1m in height.
The deferred planning application will be considered at the November Planning Meeting of Preston City Council.
