Plans to erect an Orthodox Jewish boundary made up of poles and wires to be established in parts of Kilburn have been submitted to Camden Council.

The controversial boundary – known as an Eruv - marks out an area within which Orthodox Jews can engage in activities normally deemed as work and banned during the Sabbath, such as pushing a trolley or pram or carrying shopping.

Pairs of poles (each up to 5.5m high) with clear fishing wire running between them are proposed at 15 locations across Kilburn, West Hampstead, Swiss Cottage, and Fortune Green labelled the Brondesbury Eruv.

Those backing Eruvim – already established in other areas of London - have always argued the poles and wires are discreet and blend into the street furniture. When plans surfaced of an 18-mile Eruv to be erected in Camden in 2010, opponents submitted concerns that the poles would “clutter” public streets with “religious paraphernalia”.

The current Eruv plans were submitted by Brondesbury Park Synagogue.

Residents have until June 23 to make their views known to the council.
