Plan passed to build new cre­ma­to­rium for district

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PLANS for a new cre­ma­to­rium have been given the go ahead.

Ayles­bury Vale District Coun­cil (AVDC) passed the ap­pli­ca­tion for a new cre­ma­to­rium two miles north of Ayles­bury, on Wed­nes­day, July 9.

Chiltern District Coun­cil sub­mit­ted the plans on be­half of the Chilterns Cre­ma­to­rium Joint Com­mit­tee, rep­re­sent­ing Ayles­bury Vale, Chiltern and Wy­combe district coun­cils.

The group’s cre­ma­to­rium in Amer­sham opened in 1966, but the com­mit­tee said there is an in­creas­ing de­mand for burial plots.

The pres­sure on Amer­sham Cre­ma­to­rium prompted the search for new land, though peo­ple will be able to choose which cre­ma­to­rium to use.

Work is ex­pected to start on the site in the next few months and the cre­ma­to­rium is ex­pected to open in early 2016.
