A new cemetery could be built near Calverton if a planning application is approved.
Plans have been submitted to Gedling Borough Council to create a new burial ground on land off George’s Lane outside the village.
The plans have been submitted by A W Lymn – one of the UK’s largest funeral directors.
In documents provided to the council as part of the planning process, the applicant has outlined their vision for the site.
They say they plan to “create a multi-functional cemetery capable of supporting a variety of burial options, respecting the character of the site’s rural context and enhancing the potential of the site for wildlife”.
As part of the cemetery plans, a single storey ‘Solid Lox Post & Beam’ timber facilities building is also proposed to be constructed adjacent to a new site access point along with parking facilities.
The proposals also state that visual screening of the site from the adjacent residential properties and golf course would be put in place.
The application and all related documentation can be viewed on Gedling Borough Council’s website HERE
