Plans to build a new Islamic mosque in Kirkcaldy have met with fierce objection from neighbouring residents.
Such was the level of opposition to proposals to demolish the existing Fife Islamic Centre in Templehall and build a large, two-storey domed building in its place that a special hearing took place yesterday to discuss key issues.
The event at the Adam Smith Theatre was attended by the Kirkcaldy area committee, the applicant, Fife Islamic Centre, and people from the local area.
Various concerns were raised at the meeting including inadequate parking, noise disturbance, an increase in traffic, hours of use, wildlife and green corridor issues and the possible threat to pigeon club, the Novar Homing Society, if its tenancy was transferred from Fife Council to the Islamic Centre.
