Mosque proposal divides residents
by Lisa Cox
ACT planners have been told that women in burqas will scare children in Gungahlin if Canberra's Muslim community proceeds with plans to build a mosque in the area.
The ACT Planning and Land Authority has received more than 50 submissions in response to the proposed development on The Valley Avenue.
It follows a campaign by a group called the "Concerned Citizens of Canberra" that urged residents to object to the development because of its "social impact" and concerns about traffic and noise.
