School told to sound proof for neighbours.

AN ISLAMIC school has been ordered to install sound proofing to a party wall to prevent creating a noise and nuisance to it next-door neighbour.

The Jami Masjid and Islamic Centre wants to open classrooms for up to 40 pupils in an extended end-terrace house in Lloyd Street, Small Heath.

The city's planning committee heard that the empty building has been previously used as a taxi firm booking base and MP's offices.

But Gulzar Khan, whose terraced home shares a wall with the building, said: "I do not want a school next door.

"This is a residential street. The property is clearly unsuitable."

A spokesman for the centre insisted it would only be open between 9am and 5pm, unlike the taxi office.

They added that pupils would leave at the back of the property.

The committee approved the centre but on condition that sound proofing is installed to prevent noise through the adjoining wall.
