David Hayes continues fight against new cemetery in ward Local councillor David Hayes has continued the fight against locating a new cemetery in the ward – either on Allendale Road in the Grange Park or on part of Shelthorpe golf course. David was speaking at a meeting of the Loughborough Area Committee on 18 August 2018 and was supported by Ted Parton, the county councillor for the area. “Residents have made it quite clear that they do not want a cemetery in this area”, David said. “In Grange Park, many residents bought their houses believing that this was recreation ground. Although most of them did not oppose having cemeteries, they argued that what was in effect change of use and a proposal that would bring more traffic into an already busy area was simply not acceptable”. Opposition to the social proposal was not unanimous, however, and local Labour councillor Mary Draycott argued that Allendale Road was not only an appropriate location but that she would have no problem living next door to a cemetery. “That is her choice”, added David, “but it is not a view taken by an overwhelming number of residents in the area”.
