Running out of space? The Legal and Practical Aspects of the Re-Use of Burial Sites

Nicholas Evans LLB (Hons) LLM, Partner and Roll A Parliamentary Agent, will be speaking at CBCE 2017 on Wednesday 5th July along with Mustafa Latif-Aramesh LLB (Hons), Solicitor, Bircham Dyson Bell LLP and Peter Mitchell FICCM (Dip), Principal, Peter Mitchell Associates.

Many cemeteries are dealing with the issue of running out of space in their sites. Given the legal restrictions on dealing with human remains and the reluctance of local authorities to authorise cemetery use on alternative sites, a viable alternative is needed.

This presentation deals with how cemeteries can seek new powers to re-use existing burial spaces by extinguishing existing burial rights and “lifting and deepening” existing grave sites to allow for
re-use. Peter Mitchell will explain the practical benefits of this method, Nick Evans and Mustafa Latif-Aramesh will present on the legal aspects of the issue and the process.

Nick Evans is a partner and parliamentary agent at Bircham Dyson Bell, a firm of solicitors based in Westminster. As a parliamentary agent he has been involved in the promotion of several “Private Bills” including work concerning private cemeteries. Nick also advises on the authorisation of major economic infrastructure, whether in the transport, energy, water or waste sectors, and associated environmental and planning issues.

CBCE offers three days of presentations, engaging panel and discussions, case studies; exhibition area, networking lunches and evening receptions from Monday 3rd through to Wednesday 5th July 2017. Held at the Stratford Manor Hotel, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire, hosted by the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities and the Cremation Society of Great Britain.
