Rival developers vow to fight again after judicial review on crematorium thrown out


The developer building the Watermead crematorium has signalled that it intends to continue its fights against a rival Bierton scheme.

Westerleigh made an application for leave to challenge the AVDC’s decision to grant planning permission for a crematorium on the land at Cane End Lane, Bierton.

A court judgement was made on 11 February 2016 dismissing their application and this was subsequently appealed.

A hearing took place on 22 March 2016 and was dismissed at the Royal Courts of Justice.

Aylesbury Vale District Council received notice on 30 March 2016 that Westerleigh are now seeking to appeal against that judgement in the Court of Appeal.
