1993 CHAPTER xvi

An Act to remove, as respects part of the land comprised in Woodgrange Park Cemetery, all trusts, obligations, disabilities and restrictions that are attached to that land by reason of its being used or set apart for the interment of human remains or by reason of its being a cemetery or disused burial ground; and for related purposes.

[5th November 1993]

WHEREAS—

(2)The cemetery was acquired by Badgehurst Limited in a considerable state of dereliction, and is in great need of work to restore it to a fit and proper condition:

(3)The release of lands within the cemetery for housing development would provide capital to facilitate the restoration of the remainder of the cemetery as a cemetery and garden of remembrance, and the cemetery would benefit from the provision of a caretaker’s house within its grounds:

(7)It is expedient that the scheduled lands should be freed from all restrictions prohibiting the proposed development so as to enable the provision of the intended housing development and caretaker’s house subject to the grant of any requisite planning consent:

(8)It is expedient that the provisions contained in this Act with respect to the removal of human remains, tombstones and monuments from the scheduled lands should be enacted:

(9)It is expedient that the other provisions contained in this Act should be enacted:

(10)The objects of this Act cannot be attained without the authority of Parliament:
