Plans to build Muslim cemetery in Catherine-de-Barnes withdrawn

Plans for a 4,000-plot Muslim cemetery near Solihull have been withdrawn.

More than 160 objections and 180 submissions of support were sent to Solihull Council over the plans for the village of Catherine-de-Barnes.

Mohammed Moosa, the applicant, said the council kept demanding documentation and changes costing hundreds and thousands of pounds.

Solihull Council said it still needed various paperwork from the applicant at the time of the withdrawal.
