The controversy about the Lleida´s mosque location goes on. Currently, the town council urged the Muslim community of Nord Street to find a new location for their prayer room. The city council offered an alternative location in an industrial zone but a report commissioned by the business owners of that area concludes that the construction of the mosque isn’t viable there. The main argument to support this conclusion is that this area has been classified as industrial zone and the construction of the mosque is contravening the Catalonian law about town planning.
