Proposed New Cemetery off Mendip Road Update

Proposed New Cemetery Update

The Parish Council would like to give an update on progression with the new cremation cemetery off Mendip Road adjacent to the allotments. North Somerset Council have agreed the area of land they allow the Parish Council to use for the cemetery and this will be on the basis of a long term lease. The lease is now being worked on by the respective solicitors.

The Parish Council is now compiling the documents required for submission of a planning application in the autumn. When the application has been registered another update will advise of the application number for the community to make comments. If the application is approved, it is hoped work will commence for this project next year.

There is still space for cremation interments at our current burial ground adjacent to St Mary's church.

If you would like any further information please contact the Clerk on or 01934 838971 Mob: 07484 522349
