WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED BY WILLOUGHBY COUNCIL THAT THIS APPLICATION HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN.
The Church of Scientology at 126 Greville Street is trying to “creep” their hours of operation. Their approved hours of operation are 8:30AM to 8:30PM, 7 days a week with premises to be vacated by 9:30PM.
There has been numerous complaints about late might noise as parisioners leave well after approved hours.
The Church now is requesting the hours of operation of the ’business premises’ and ’place of public worship’ are restricted to 7.45am to 10.00pm, 7 days a week. Except for security staff and/or cleaners, all staff, parishioners and visitors shall: – vacate the premises via Greville Street no later than 1 O.OOpm to 10.30pm. – vacate the premises via Millwood Avenue no later than 11.45pm. Parishioners typically do their theological studies throughout the day in study periods of 2.5 hours. On Sunday mornings, those already on site attend a one hour service in the Chapel which takes place within the standard hours of hours of operation.
Full details are available on the Council Website.
Based on prior feedback CWWPA will lodge an objection to the proposed extension of operating hours.
