Memorial safety testingPublished Thursday 6 December 2018
Harborough District Council is to carry out a headstone survey for safety reasons in line with Ministry of Justice guidelines.
The church yards and cemeteries to be surveyed include:
- Broughton Astley
- Great Bowden
- Great Easton
The inspections will begin early in 2019. Any memorials found to be unsafe will have a notice placed next to them informing of the instability. Any found to be dangerous will also be either supported using temporary stakes / cordoned off or laid down as appropriate.
The memorial owner is responsible for any remedial work required and will be contacted if necessary.
For further information please contact Harborough District Council by email via firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01858 828282.
