A former Sunday School building has now been taken over by Colne Mosques Association.
Last year we reported that the group had been in talks with the previous Bradford owners of the Exchange Street site. And now Coun. Tony Greaves has confirmed the move, stating that the association hope to make progress “soon”.
He said: “They are hoping to start to clear up the yard, which is just a jungle, fairly soon now. That is their first job.”
Previously known as St Bartholomew’s Sunday School, the site has been empty and disused for around 10 years
The Waterside Neighbourhood Action Group have expressed their desire that the building is still available for community use.
