A public consultation event for the district’s proposed new crematorium on land near Skipton on Swale is taking place next week.

The drop-in session at Sandhutton and Breckenbrough village hall on Wednesday 26 February between 1 and 7pm is for anyone with an interest in this new development.

The crematorium plans and information boards will be on display and representatives from Hambleton District Council and The CDS Group - the main consultant managing the delivery of the project, will be on hand to answer any questions. 

“This is a pre-planning consultation event to help local people familiarise themselves with the new facility and what is planned, ask questions and provide us with useful insight, to help shape this development as the project continues,” said Leader of Hambleton District Council, Councillor Mark Robson.

“When completed, the new crematorium will offer state-of-the-art facilities combined with more traditional aspects. With fewer than sixty new crematoria built in the UK over the past thirty-five years, this will be an important local asset for the district - something not already here, and something really quite special.”

The consultation will also be online from 26 February:

Information and displays will be in the Civic Centre, Stone Cross, Rotary Way, Northallerton, DL6 2UU after the event.
