Consultation: new proposed cemetery at Penn Road

This consultation is now closed.

Summary

This was a pre-application consultation for the proposed plans for a new cemetery for High Wycombe at Penn Road, Hazlemere.

The current High Wycombe town cemetery is running out of burial space for child and chambered burials. An appraisal of various site options was conducted, with the Queensway site (accessed from Penn Road) found to be the most suitable.

The site at Queensway would provide a 3.9 hectare cemetery, including a woodland walk, reflective pools and columbaria (for the internment of ashes) as well as a small administration building and on-site car parking.
