CAR PARK PROJECT COMPLETION
The Whitwell Cemetery Car Park project was completed on 18 October 2018.
The car park, which has 14 parking bays marked-out, is now open for the use of visitors to Whitwell Cemetery. The project also incorporated the installation of a verge crossing adjacent to the car park entrance
Whitwell Parish Council entered into a 99 year lease with a local farmer in 2007 to use a piece of land on High Street Whitwell, across from Whitwell cemetery, as a car park for the use of cemetery visitors. Planning permission was granted and the project was started within the 3 year planning period with some site clearance, work on diverting the path and a height restriction barrier has also recently been installed.
The parish council has since precept a sum of money each year towards the cost of the required works to surface the car park and to create a verge crossing across the road near the memorial bench. This year the council budgeted for the remainder of the money required in order to complete the works, which went out to tender and a contractor was appointed through this process.
