Grange Cemetery extension approved by councillors

BUCHAN councillors approved a tender for work on the extension to Peterhead’s Grange Cemetery.

At their meeting in Peterhead last Tuesday, members of the Buchan area committee gave their acceptance of a tender submitted by CHAP Construction (Aberdeen) Ltd, in the amount of £278,047.10 for the work. The work to be carried out under this contract involves the second phase extension of the existing Grange Cemetery into the adjacent ground to provide 1,360 additional lair spaces including store, footpaths, roadway, gates, boundary walls and fencing.

This provision would give approximately 25 years’ worth of lair sales at the current level.
