Saving Sandbach Cemetery

We the undersigned petition the council to Allocate part of the field off Hassall Road adjacent to the cemetery for future expansion of the cemetery as was originally planned by the council.

It has recently been disclosed that Sandbach Cemetery has only enough spaces available for the next eight years and after that anyone wishing to be buried will be taken to Crewe or Macclesfield.

It has always been in the plans that the field adjacent to the cemetery was earmarked as an extension to the Cemetery and this was changed without any consultation with the residents of the town.

We are trying to establish local opinion and therefore have set up this petition to get the feeling of the townspeople as to whether the decision that was taken by the Council was in the interest of the town and if there is a strong enough feeling to get the decision reversed.

We are not asking for the removal of the children's play area but the now defunct football pitch be used for its original intended purpose of a cemetery extension.

This ePetition ran from 27/04/2021 to 08/06/2021 and has now finished.
