Divine Planning Intervention

September 14, 2010

The last time that you applied for a council building permit, it mightn’t have been a ‘divine’ experience.

More often than not, the red tape involved with planning can be frustrating and difficult to understand. A Caulfield North synagogue has been given the go ahead on an SJB Planning permit to use the buildings and land at 1 and 1A Albany Court as a place of worship 7 days a week.

City of Glen Eira councillors voted on the application in late August, being 6-3 in favor of the plans. There have been several conditions put upon the approval however, including limiting use of the synagogue to religious services only. This won’t include weddings, bar mitzvahs, child care etc.

The site is referred to by the Caulfield Leader as a private cul-de-sac – this is a point that one of the councillors also brought up as a reason for the site being inappropriate. Do you think that these conditions will impact upon the success and use of the synagogue – or do these conditions protect the residential nature of the cul-de-sac?
