Mepal Outdoor Centre set for new lease of life as a crematorium and woodland burial site

Major plans have been approved which will see the derelict Mepal Outdoor Centre transformed into a crematorium, woodland burial area and pet cemetery.

A special full meeting of East Cambridgeshire District Council on Friday evening approved an outline business plan for the move, which council leader Councillor Anna Bailey said would transform the eyesore and bring it back into use.

However, not everyone is happy with the plans and within hours of the announcement of the proposed crematorium an online petition was launched to keep the site as a leisure centre, with nearly 1,000 people signing in less than 48 hours.
