Chance to see Crematorium plans at drop-in sessions

Local residents can take a first look at plans for new, improved facilities for Guildford Crematorium at two drop-in sessions this month.

The proposed design for new crematorium buildings, improved access and better car parking facilities will be on show on Saturday 20 May and Tuesday 23 May, ahead of a planning application which will be submitted this summer.

Cllr Matt Furniss, Deputy Leader of the Council and Lead Councillor for Infrastructure and Governance, says: "We are investing £10 million in a project to rebuild our crematorium at the existing site, which will help meet the changing needs of our population and offer better facilities and a supportive, inclusive and caring environment for the bereaved.

"We have been working closely with the key groups who use our services to develop these plans. Now we would like to hear from our residents - please come along and take a look at our proposals this weekend. We want to create a peaceful, welcoming environment for people to remember their loved ones, and welcome feedback on our plans."

The main session takes place at Guildford Crematorium on Saturday 20 May from 9am to midday, with a chance to meet the architects. For those unable to attend, there will be another session on Tuesday 23 May from 2.30 to 4.30pm.

There is no need to book, just come along.

Work on the main building will begin in spring 2018 (subject to planning permission) and is due for completion in May 2019.
