Planning application for new cemetery

Acle Parish Council is applying for planning permission to change the use of land from agriculture to a cemetery, for half an acre of land at the top of Pyebush Lane, to the west of the footpath.

The Cranes have offered to sell us the land for a new cemetery, which we desperately need.

Details are at Broadland District Council’s website under application no: 20190908.

If you support this, please add your comments on the BDC website under 20190908 or email: [email protected]
