Reversal of LEC Ruling against Bondi Synagogue (F.R.E.E)

This petition had 6,569 supporters

To: The Honourable Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister and Minister for Wentworth.

The decision to refuse the development application by F.R.E.E. to build a Synagogue on Wellington Street, Bondi; came as surprise and shock to the entire Jewish world. The reason for the refusal was based on a "security risk assessment" and the impeding threat of terrorism. 

The decision stands to stifle Jewish way of life by creating a dangerous precedent.

The Land & Environment Court together with Waverley Council has effectively ruled it cannot protect members of the community and thus cannot allow the Jewish community in Sydney to develop infrastructure to sustain its growth. 

We respectfully request the decision be overruled and fundamental civil liberties be applied.

This petition will be presented to the Prime Minister and Minister for Wentworth, The Honourable Malcom Turnbull and Minister for Planning, The Honourable Anthony Roberts.
