MEP visits Europe’s first eco-mosque

Posted by Alex Mayer on 17th May 2019

Cambridgeshire Euro MP Alex Mayer was treated to a behind the scenes tour of Cambridge’s new “eco-mosque” which has just opened its doors.

The Central Mosque, in Mill Road is Europe’s very first eco-mosque and is
designed to be environmentally friendly, with zero carbon on-site emissions.

Ms Mayer was shown around by Dr Tim Winter who explained how the architecturally stunning mosque makes use of rainwater harvesting and air source heat pumps.

Alex Mayer MEP: “This mosque is a huge boost to local Muslims who for the first time have a purpose built place for worship. The hugely impressive building, which is up for architectural awards, is also another jewel in Cambridge’s crown and I know people are already coming from far and wide to visit.”
