Planning committee approves application for proposal to build new crematorium in Holderness
East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Planning Committee has approved planning permission to build a new crematorium in Holderness.
The proposals for the new facility, off Lelley Road, near Preston, were considered by the committee at its meeting today (Thursday, 25 February) and is the latest milestone in the project after the business case was approved by the council's cabinet earlier in the month.
The development will offer people a fitting and sensitive place to commemorate their loved ones, with planned features including a new woodland, a memory walk and other areas for remembrance and celebration.

Councillor Richard Burton, leader of the council, said: "I am delighted that the planning committee has supported this proposal. It is a much-needed facility which will reduce the amount of distance and time residents of Holderness need to travel and will provide the opportunity for their loved ones to be laid to rest closer to where they live."
