Sutton Council has extended the consultation period on plans to convert the vacant Bank Chambers in Green Lane, Worcester Park, into a mosque following high levels of public interest in the proposal.
The public consultation had been due to end last Friday, but has been extended by a week to give local residents more opportunity to make their representations about proposals for the mosque.
Those wishing to comment, support or object formally to the planning application now have until Friday 17th August to do so online via Sutton Council's planning application portal.

The future of the pub was thrown into doubt after its owners, the Spirit Pub Company, put the freehold of the building up for sale in May prompting concerned locals to set up a campaign to save the public house.
The venue will be closing down next week after owners failed to find a buyer to run it as a going concern.
