Town set to get new PS200,000 graveyard.

A NEW PS200,000 graveyard is being built to tackle the shortage of burial space in Dudley.

Dudley Council has earmarked a section of land in Clee Road, opposite the existing cemetery which only has enough space to last another 12 months.

The new site should provide enough burial space for the next 20 years. Work is expected to start later this year, with the site open by the end of the year.

Coun Hilary Bills, cabinet member for the environment, said: "The new facility will be able to cater for specific religious needs which is something that is very important to us with the rich diversity we have in the borough."
