The Committee gave consideration to a report providing an update on the current Argyll and Bute cemetery provision and highlighting interventions within the asset group since it was last reported to committee in 2019. The report provided a revised list of at risk assets based on current figures and a revised projection model. Overall the number of high risk assets had reduced since 2019.
The Environment, Development and Infrastructure Committee –
1. endorsed the works done to date to reduce the number of high risk cemetery assets;
2. endorsed and approved the temporary local arrangement to restrict the pre-sale of lairs to protect the cemetery capacity;
3. noted the future capital investment required in this asset group; and
4. noted that a further report on cemetery assets would be brought forward to the March Environment, Development and Infrastructure Committee meeting, which would present options for reviewing the current policy as well as management of cemetery assets in the context of current needs and future demands.
Councillor Donald Kelly having moved an amendment which failed to find a seconder, requested that his dissent be recorded from the foregoing decision.
