Cemetery consultation drop-in session

  • MG 7129

A drop-in session is being held as part of a consultation over plans to create a new cemetery in Loughborough.

Charnwood Borough Council is holding the session on Monday, September 3 at Loughborough Town Hall between 2pm and 7pm.

Details about the Council’s proposals will be on display and officers will be on hand to answer questions.

Matt Bradford, head of cleansing and open spaces at the Council, said: “We are encouraging people to have a say in the consultation and this is another opportunity for people to get involved in the process.

“We’ll be happy to answer questions and discuss any issues residents have.”

The Council is seeking views on sites for a new burial ground as the current cemetery in Leicester Road is expected to be full within four years.

The Council has investigated a number of locations but has identified three viable options which could provide future burial space.

They are land at Allendale Road, land at Nanpantan and part of Shelthorpe Golf Course although the Council says nine holes would be retained as part of an improved facility.

The consultation closes on September 23.
