A third application to build an Islamic centre in Maidenhead has been submitted to the Royal Borough this week.
The Islamic Trust wants to build a three-storey community hall as well as a mortuary and multifunctional teaching rooms on land behind the Maidenhead Mosque in Holmanleaze.
The Trust first put forward plans for the development in March 2011 which sparked a protest by the English Defence League. The proposal was rejected five months later by the council over concerns about parking.
A second application was submitted in November the following year but was withdrawn over concerns about flooding.
A council decision over the latest set of plans is due to be made by November 27.
