New cemetery at Little Trees

Crawley Borough Council has agreed to build the town’s new cemetery at Little Trees near Tollgate Hill, and has submitted a planning application to convert the site.

The 12-acre site, which is on council-owned land adjacent to the A264 Crawley South West By-Pass, would provide enough cemetery space for up to 50 years.

You can click on the links below to see plans showing the location of various types of burials on the site – in phase one and when the cemetery is complete by:

Consultation was carried out in February and March 2015 to collect the views of residents, community groups and faith groups on these proposed designs. For further details see the Consultation Report .
