1 Mins read

Councillors voted tonight to implement new rules and regulations regarding Cemeteries across the Borough of Causeway Coast and Glens.

The proposals, which will see all Council owned Graveyards to be operated as Lawn Cemeteries, with no stone surrounds or memorials allowed.

The matter caused a fair bit of contention among local residents who were concerned that Council Officers would force them to remove the memorials.

After a lengthy debate, Councillor David Harding proposed that Councillors adopt the proposals on the table, implementing the new rules and regulations immediately while leaving all existing graves as is.

This was approved following a vote of 16 for and 7 against.
