Say no to crematorium in Thames town center.

This petition had 210 supporters

We the undersigned, are opposed to the establishment of a crematorium in the town center of Thames. The urban location is inappropriate and will have a detrimental effect on the homes and businesses in the area. We seek to have a crematorium established elsewhere in the Thames area, as we acknowledge there is a community need, and we would like to see a crematorium established which will service the needs of the ENTIRE community, not just those who choose to use Twentymans Funeral Services. We urge Waikato Regional Council to take into account the location of the proposed crematorium (it is to be located in an urban area among cafes, businesses and houses) and create some pathway by which there can be public consultation on this issue, we believe it should be publicly notified. The people of Thames have been left in a terrible situation, let down by TCDC, because of a failure in planning, and as a high proportion of the community are opposed to the crematorium, we seek a way in which we can have a voice and would like there to be public consultation. We are also concerned about the detrimental effect we feel a crematorium will have on the amenities value of the area, which is designated an historic precinct.
