Planners at South Derbyshire District Council have given permission to Dignity Funerals to go ahead with our scheme in Derby Road, Aston on Trent.

It will involve the creation of a chapel big enough to seat 100 people, a memorial garden with a water feature, seating and footpaths, all set in landscaped grounds.

The site, which will also have a car park, will cover a total area of 11.4 acres.

We are now looking forward to working closely with Dignity, and the rest of the team, to create a detailed design for the development.

The scheme is due to start on site next year.
