Council’s cemetery plan has stalled

Have your say

A long-running project to provide a cemetery extension on a new site in Sutton Bridge has hit a problem.

The parish council had hoped to use land owned by Scotts Miracle-Gro but the company won’t sell the site.

Parish councillor Vicky Hills told Tuesday’s parish council meeting: “It’s back to the drawing board.

“I have got some suggestions but I won’t put those forward right now.”

Parish council chairman John Grimwood suggested a face to face meeting with the company to see if an agreement can still be reached.

• Over the last year the council has heard progress reports on test graves at the site to test its suitability.
