Bierton Crematorium

Location: Aylesbury
Client: Chilterns Crematorium Joint Committee
Sector: Assess Promote
Scope: Regeneration

Advisory role to support the delivery of a commercially contentious scheme through the planning process. Robust justification was required for the development, both in terms of its impact on the countryside and AONB, and in relation to the need for two crematoria in close proximity to each other to the east of Aylesbury. Particular emphasis was placed on the quality of the scheme and building design references to its agricultural context, with the need justified by reference to the long established policy requirement and subsequent housing growth in the District with a particular focus on Aylesbury.

The development was completed and opened in 2019.
