Tower Hill Cemetery - Pedestrian Gate

To receive the report of the Operations Manager


The Committee received the report of the Operations Manager.


Members were disappointed to hear of anti-social behavioural problems in the Tower Hill cemetery which appeared to have been brought about by the installation of the gate. They discussed the implementations of locking the gate in the evenings, thus restricting access to the cemetery however it was agreed that these changes were not appropriate.


The Committee was happy for a sign to be installed to advise that the gate would be locked during funeral services, they also asked that the Operations Manager investigate if a ‘soft close’ spring could be considered to ensure the gate closes over after use.




1.      That, the report be noted and,

2.      That, a sign be erected on the pedestrian gate to advise of closure when funerals are in progress.
