CartoConsult’s Smart Maps Help Plan Crematoria Expansion

Swindon, UK, November 4, 2015 CartoConsult is helping Dignity Plc expand its nationwide network of crematoria. Working for Harris Lamb, one of the UK’s largest independently owned property consultancy businesses, CartoConsult has prepared a number of Planning Policy Appraisal Maps. These highly detailed maps draw on a number of sources and are custom designed to provide an instant, easy to use visual representation of possible sites, their surroundings and any potential constraints to development. The CartoConsult maps are used by Harris Lamb and Dignity to identify potentially suitable locations as well as forming important supporting documentation as part of the planning application.

 

“The work carried out by CartoConsult has proved invaluable in helping to identify suitable crematoria sites and secure planning consent,” commented Mark Alcock, Associate Planner at Harris Lamb. “As a result of the work carried out by CartoConsult, we have been able to demonstrate to Local Authorities that we have selected the most suitable site for a new crematorium. Some of these sites have been located within the Green Belt, so presenting a strong case has been crucial.

 

“In fact, as a result of the work undertaken by CartoConsult, we recently obtained planning consent for a new crematorium in the Green Belt on the Edge of Derby.”

 

CartoConsult has completed around twenty five planning application site searches on behalf of Dignity Plc to date. Taking into account the specific physical requirements of the site and strict national guidelines, CartoConsult also considered environmental and heritage information and local development plan data when producing the custom designed digital and hardcopy map products.

 

Around 70 percent of all deaths in the UK are followed by a cremation, and Dignity, one of largest providers of funeral services in the UK, has seen an expansion in its crematoria network of nearly 40 percent in the last eight years. The CartoConsult maps also form part of the planning documentation to demonstrate to the Local Authority that the site selection process followed a logical and methodical approach.

 

“CartoConsult will continue to play an integral part in Dignity’s growth ambitions, producing professional, high quality map outputs,” continued Mark Alcock. “I am also looking forward to working with them on other projects.”
