Proposed new cemetery ground (updated 7th December 2020)
The Parish Council purchased a 4 acre section of land known as Long Ground, Church Street for the sole purpose of gaining planning permission to create a new Cemetery within Purton. Our existing Cemetery has limited space and without this proposed new area, we would not be able to offer a burial service within Purton. We have undertaken initial testing and a planning application will be submitted shortly. The timeframe for permission, is approximately 18 months. We aim to have a response from the application 2022.
If anyone has any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact the offices direct and speak to the Clerk.
