Decision on new Edgware synagogue imminent
A small synagogue could be opened in Edgware if plans are approved at a council meeting on Thursday night (tomorrow).
Applicants KBA want to convert Mobray House, in Edgware Way, near the junction with Broadfields Avenue, into a place of worship.
The plans also include provision for a Talmudic Research Centre, a school for Jewish studies.
If councillors approve the application at tomorrow’s meeting, congregations would be restricted to just 50 members per session.
Planning officers, which have recommended the application be approved, would also restrict opening times at the synagogue and prevent its use for larger events such as weddings or Bar Mitzvahs.
Five neighbours consulted over the plans have requested permission to speak at the planning meeting, with some concerned about parking provision at the site.
