New Cemetery in Leverstock Green

Some time ago LGVA was informed that a new cemetery was required in Dacorum as the existing one has reach capacity.  We were told that it would be sited in Leverstock Green, probably adjacent to the entrance to Bunkers Park.

Provisional plans have now been published and Phase 1 of the new cemetery is planned for part of the field to the left of the Bunkers Park access road.  It will occupy approximately half of this field on the green area of the map below.  In January 2019 discussion took place on the feasibilty of including a crematorium which, if it goes ahead, will occupy the yellow area.

LGVA does not intend to object to this plan but we will be looking for agreeable landscaping and screening and a metaled access road extending all the way into the Bunkers Park car park.

The future of the field to the right of the access road is uncertain, for the immediate future it will remain as open land, forming a barrier between housing and the cemetery.  Plans for the tennis club to occupy this field have been dropped and, if developed at all, it will be for undetermined leisure use.
