The future of our cemeteries

Camberwell New - Hill View

Background

The previously unused former Honor Oak Nursery site at Camberwell New Cemetery was identified as a short term option to create burial space, within the 2012 Cemetery Strategy. It is now a burial area.

Process

The scheme (previously called Area B) has brought the site back into public use through remodelling. It is now suitable for burials, there is a new entrance to the cemetery and recreational grounds, and biodiversity has been improved including a new pond.  

The planning application was approved in June 2017. The application reference number is 17/AP/0671

The project is now complete.

Several Area B option designs have been produced at a number of different stages of the project. The options referred to within the ecological reports refer to pre-consultation draft options and not the final design publicly presented at the July consultation.
