Wilsden Cemetery, Shay Lane, Wilsden

Wilsden Parish Council is consulting on a proposal to take over management of a part of the grassed area not currently used for burials and making this into a wildflower area. It is proposed that the selected area will be cut once per year and the grass removed from site. A map of the proposed area can be seen here. The impact on the biodiversity of the area will be monitored in conjunction with local naturalist groups.

Please submit any comments on these proposals before August 7th to the Parish Clerk, Wilsden Parish Council, Wilsden Village Hall, Townfield, Wilsden BD15 0HT or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
