West of England Young Planners are pleased to provide details of their next Seminar...Planning for Death
‘’….in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”
Despite the inevitability of death, planning for the disposal of dead is a much neglected area within the planning world. This, combined with an ageing population and the huge pressure on land is potentially accumulating into a significant planning issue.
This event will focus on planning for the disposal of the dead, taking into account changes in burial practise, faith group requirements, urban and rural cemetery planning, and how Local Authorities can seek to avoid issues associated with insufficient burial space.
You will begin with a tour of the renown Arnos Vale cemetery, a unique and splendid Victorian Garden Cemetery in the heart of Bristol. Dr Katie McClymont, a senior lecturer at UWE will present her recent research on cemetery and burial planning, followed by Lee Searles from Enzygo, who undertook the Harborough District Council Cemetery and Burial Strategy. This strategy won the ‘Plan-making’ award at the recent 2018 Planning Awards.
This event has kindly been sponsored by Enzygo Ltd.
