CREMATORIA

background board UR

There have now been 3 applications for crematoria within the parish.

The first application was from a company called Memoria on a site between the Badgers Mount Hotel and Orchard Barn on the A224.  The PC strongly opposed this application on the grounds that there was sufficient capacity at existing crematoria to cater for current levels of demand, and the damage which this type of development would do to the Green Belt.  Although SDC Planners recommended this application should be approved, District Councillors rejected the application because of lack of need and unnecessary over-development of the Green Belt.  Memoria appealed and the Planning Inspector has rejected the appeal.

The second application was by Mercia on a site adjacent to Oak Tree Farm, again on the A224.  The PC again strongly opposed this application on the grounds of lack of need and because of the type of work being undertaken on the adjacent farm, which we felt was an inappropriate neighbour for a crematorium.  In the light of the Inspector’s report on the Memoria application, SDC Planners recommended the application for refusal.  Development Control Committee, in turn, rejected the application.  We are still waiting to hear whether there will be an appeal against this decision.

The third application, for a crematorium to be added to the current approved plan for the site, has been withdrawn.  The Parish Council is not currently aware whether a new application will be submitted.
