This proposed changes would involve the change of use of 0.67ha of land from agricultural use to use as burial ground, the extension of the existing access route, calvary scene, four additional car parking spaces including for a hearse, burial plots, planting and all ancillary site works.
St Fursey’s Cemetery is adjoining St Fursey’s Church, which is a protected strucutre.
