Plans unveiled for new cemetery in Derry

Derry City and Strabane District Council has unveiled plans for a new cemetery.

The local authority has acquired lands on Mullenan Road in the City with a view to developing a new cemetery that will cater for the long term, strategic burial needs for the foreseeable future.

An extensive public consultation is underway on the draft proposals for a new strategic Municipal Cemetery on the west bank of the city.

The proposed development will see the establishment of a Cemetery that includes provision of approximately 4000 burial plots with associated parking/landscaping, a memorial service building & garden, repositories for ashes, conversion of existing dwelling to admin building, removal of existing outbuildings and construction of operations buildings/yard.

A new footway link will also be established.

People are being asked to have their say with a number of public information events being held in the coming weeks as part of a three-month pre-application community consultation period that is required prior to Council submitting a major planning applicatio.

The deadline for submissions is 4.00pm on Friday November 18th.
