PLANS have been submitted to extend Moray Crematorium at Broadley, just outside Buckie.
The proposals, which have been lodged with Moray Council, focus on improving office space for administration staff and an improved waiting area for family members.
If approved the plans would also allow for increased capacity for operation and business growth at the site, which is owned by Dignity Funerals, as well as the installation of a new filtration system to meet up and coming legislation changes.
The new office is proposed as a new single storey, standalone building constructed from mixed materials (timber, stone and tin), all of which are currently on site.
The current office space would be converted to an area for families to wait prior to services which will not entail any alterations to building fabric.
Business needs and demands require, the firm state in the application, storage and this will be in the form of a symmetrical steel framed and clad building, occupying the area where a container currently resides. This container will be redundant and removed from its current location.
The new filtration system will sit in the same extension as the storage area and occupy the area to the rear of the building.
