Against redevelopment in the General Cemetery

We the undersigned petition the council to Reject the proposal to create a car park within the General Cemetery. Extend the public consultation period beyond the first of March. Direct the proposer of the application 18/00235/FUL to revise and resubmit the above scheme, including full detailed information and drawings.

In 2007 English Heritage published,' Paradise Preserved' an assessment into the conservation of historic cemeteries. They state 'cemetery landscapes were carefully designed to enhance the symbolism of this landscape.' And that ' wildlife colonizes these quiet green spaces which quickly become important habitats for plants and animals... They are gems of countryside and remnant habitats locked in an urban setting.'

The application 18/00235/FUL will greatly disturb and destroy this 'Preserved Paradise'.
