Residents are being advised that access to Hatton Cemetery will be disrupted during a period of essential maintenance works due to run for approximately five weeks.
Published: Friday, 22nd June 2018
The works are scheduled to begin on Monday 25 June and due to be completed on Monday 30 July.
Maintenance works are also scheduled for Borough Cemetery. These are set to run for approximately five weeks from Monday 23 July until around Tuesday 28 August.
The council has invested £200,000 in improving the borough’s cemeteries for residents.
The works will improve burial provision, creating an additional 2,000 burial spaces, and access, with new paths and vehicle networks enhancing each cemetery.
Due to the nature of the groundworks, there will be frequent use of the main access road by heavy goods vehicles and some areas of Hatton Cemetery will not have any public access.
Councillor Sue Sampson, Cabinet Member for Leisure Services, said:
“The council committed an additional £200,000 investment over 12 months to improve its cemetery service for residents. The investment aims to improve the borough’s cemetery service for future generations and to meet the current needs of Hounslow’s diverse local community.
A significant amount of work has been undertaken to date and this is the next phase of improvements.
The council is regretful of any inconvenience caused and will make every effort to keep disruption to a minimum.”
