Mosque plan at school site abandoned due to parent fears
by Gerry Braiden
Plans for a mosque within the grounds of a school in one of Scotland's most affluent suburbs have been dropped.
Council chiefs said the proposals, for Newton Mearns, south of Glasgow, had created a significant public response and that it was being abandoned, in part, due to criticism of the move.
A report on wider proposals for the East Renfrewshire area, which is expected to be agreed next week, says: "In view of the volume of representations received, the sensitivity concerning the proposal and the extremely wide range of issues raised, it is recommended that this proposed modification be pursued no further and is not included in the plan."
