ARTISITS’ impressions of a proposed crematorium have been released by Daventry District Council and Rugby Borough Council.

The councils have been working together to develop plans for the facility, which has been designed to address a shortfall in cemetery space in Rugby and a need for a crematorium in the Rugby and Daventry area.

The artists’ impressions show how the crematorium building could look, and how it may fit into the landscape of the Rainsbrook Valley, off Ashlawn Road in Rugby.

Cllr Alan Hills, portfolio holder for community, culture and leisure at Daventry District Council, said: “These artists impressions give a good feel for how this development would fit within the exiting surroundings.

“We’ve identified an urgent need for a facility like this as people from Daventry district currently have to travel as far as Northampton and Banbury, so we are confident this will bring huge benefits to all our residents.”

A planning application for the proposed cemetery and crematorium has been submitted on behalf of Rugby Borough Council and Daventry District Council, who are the project’s promoters. The application will be determined by a meeting of Rugby Borough Council’s planning committee on Wednesday, September 26.
