Sunderland City Council has backed proposals from the Sunderland Sikh Association for the site off Ryhope Road in the Ashbrooke area. Residents in the area had raised concerns about demand for parking and historical anti-social behaviour linked to previous events. However, planning officers said police had not raised any objections and parking spaces would be increased. The association, which has 1,000 member families, plans to demolish an existing Gurdwara building, a place of worship, and build a larger one. Application details said the proposed Gurdwara would "cater for the present and future needs of the Sikh community" by providing bespoke spaces. It is also proposed the building would be "more modern, larger and energy-efficient" for events including weddings and celebrations, the Local Democracy Reporting Service said. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
