Plans for an Islamic Culture Centre in Sheerness high street have been approved by councillors.

The proposal to convert a room at the back of the former Crown pub was put forward by a group of Muslims which set up a charity to find somewhere to worship.

It was discussed by members of Swale council's planning committee at a meeting last night.

A condition has been put in place which means no call to prayer or any other amplified sounds can be heard beyond the building's perimeter.
