In its first meeting of 2019 on 2nd January, Cannock Chase Council’s Planning Committee unanimously resolved to grant planning permission for Horizon’s crematorium application.
The application was recommended for approval by Cannock’s planning officers, and councillors on the Planning Committee said they were convinced that the over-whelming need for a new crematorium in the area and a lack of sites outside the Green Belt that the Horizon proposals should be given the go ahead.
Stephen Byfield, Director of Horizon, said “What a great start to 2019! We have received an overwhelmingly positive response from the community in Cannock and it was wonderful to see all the councillors on the Planning Committee reflect this and give us the green light.”
“There are still hurdles to overcome, but we can now start preparing our construction programme. I am determined to build a great facility here.”
