Plans to convert Bridge House at 1a Stoke Road into a community centre for use by around 400 Muslim Sri Lankan families will be given the go ahead - providing a Section 106 agreement is signed.
Business owners in the area claim they know nothing about the plans - with many unaware until The Observer contacted them yesterday morning (Thursday).
Peter Mills, director of scrap metal merchants W N Thomas And Sons, in Stoke Gardens, which is directly behind Bridge House, said: "Everyone is in uproar.
"I have seen all the local premises and nobody knows anything about ot."
The planning application, submitted by Mohammed Anees of Tintern Close, Chalvey, states the centre 'will play a major part in providing useful information to the community, especially those who may encounter domestic, financial, housing or other related problems'.
