Plans to build a new £4m mosque in Berkshire have moved a step closer.
Reading town council has agreed to provide land for the new development, which will unite two existing mosques in South Street and Alexandra Road.
Negotiations between the town's Muslim community and Reading Borough Council have settled on a site at the junction of Wokingham Road and Green Road.
The existing Alexandra Road site will be returned to housing. A full report will go before the council on 17 March.
David Sutton, the leader of Reading Borough Council, said: "I wish the Muslim community every success in raising the necessary funds to build the new mosque; I know that they are confident that donors will soon come forward.
"This partnership between the council and the Muslims of Reading sends a strong message about community integration and social harmony in our town, and I am very proud about that."
