Building Progress Update

To: Local Residents and businesses in the vicinity of Ashford Square, Leaf Road, Susans Road, Councillor Wallis, and Eastbourne Planning

Re: Replacement Mosque Project at 40a Ashford SquareBuilding Progress Update


Work on our new Mosque has progressed well since our last update.


With the beam and block floor completed in November, block work internal and external walls have now reached the height of the first floor and will continue up to the main second floor roof level during February. The scaffold for the external walls is currently being put in place by Austins Cradles, the scaffold sub-contractor.


The ground floor internal steel columns are currently being erected ready for the steel beams, which will support the first floor joints. The first floor itself is planned to be completed by mid-March.


Following completion of the first floor, the carpenters will then start to place the second floor roof joists. The second floor roof itself is planned to be completed by the end of April. During this period, the main windows will also be installed, which together with the roof, will achieve a water-tight building.


At that stage, the majority of the building work becomes internal except for the application of the external render.


E & S Builders continue to have two site workers available to keep traffic flowing in Ashford Square at delivery times and to regularly clean the road.


Site operations will continue to be relatively quiet until completion of the project later this year.


East Sussex Building Control are still visiting the site to ensure compliance with building regulations and Eastbourne Borough Council are kept up to date with progress on site.


Site working hours continue to be 07:30am – 5:00pm Monday to Friday.


On Saturdays, working hours will be 07:30am until 2:00pm. There will be no Sunday works.


We thank Eastbourne’s community for its continued support.

New Mosque Milestone: Flooring!

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Construction is going from strength to strength, with bricks and planks going down to form the flooring! This is a significant milestone in the journey of creating a new modern mosque for the growing Muslim community in Eastbourne.

Thank you all for your continued support and donations – we still need a further £200,000 to complete the Mosque, so please keep donating and watch our new Masjid rise!





Concrete Foundation

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We want to update you on the progress of the construction of the new Mosque and to share with you some photographs of the next stage – laying the concrete foundations. It’s great to see the site transforming and InshaAllah in the next couple of months the building framework will go up.

Thank you all for your continued support and donations – keep them coming and watch our new Masjid rise!
