Consultation on the future Cemeteries provision across the Borough

Consultation on the future Cemeteries provision across the Borough

Based on current burial rates and number of available burials plots, it is estimated that the three cemeteries sites across the Borough Larpool cemetery in Whitby, Woodlands cemetery in Scarborough and Lawns cemetery in Filey will reach full capacity in the next four to six years.

Scarborough Borough Council has launched a consultation on its cemetery provision.

Although the provision of burial land is not a statutory function of a local authority, SBC has for many years provided such facilities for its residents and the public expectation would be for this to continue.

Scarborough Borough Council is looking at sites in Files, Scarborough and Whitby and would welcome your comments on its proposals for each site, please click here to view the consultation web page where you can provide comments on the three potential sites.

Further details on the proposals and feasibility studies carried out can be found in a report presented to Cabinet in October 2021, which you can view by clicking here.
