Banbury Town Council is seeking to obtain another burial site with Banbury’s two cemeteries due to run out of space in the next ten years.

The council currently manages two burial grounds in the town, the older Southam Road Cemetery and Hardwick Hill Cemetery, which is also located on Southam Road but closer to Little Bourton.

In The Cherwell Submission Local Plan 2006-2031 it was recognised that additional burial provision would be required to meet the needs of the town.
