Petition to get Renfrewshire Council to invest in Inchinnan Cemetery, to make it fit for purpose.

Renfrewshire Council has under invested in Inchinnan Cemetery for many years. Many families have complained directly to the council, citing many years of under investment, which has caused the original drainage to now be non existent. This has caused the cemetery to be a real health hazard, any sign of rain and the ground turns into a quagmire. Families visiting their loved ones and tending their graves have had accidents, disabled, elderly and the infirm are stopped from visiting and tending to their loved ones because of this under investment.

Assistance has been sought from our community council, local councillors and MP's and MSP's, to no avail.

Renfrewshire Council have lied to local families when arranging the burial of their loved ones; When offering available plots Renfrewshire Council have told families their preferred burial area has no plots left, only for the families to see new plots appear only weeks later. We believe this has come about because Renfrewshire Councils lack of investment has now been so bad that the available unused land within the cemetery, would make it more cost effective to close the cemetery rather than improve what is already there and to guarantee the cemetery for those now and in the future.

Renfrewshire Council are treating those who are buried and their families with such disregard, that it is acceptable to them to have their ground staff vandalise the graves, headstones and floral and trinket tributes with excessive use of industrial strength weedkiller.

The cemetery is now not only the local cemetery for Inchinnan, as the community now encompasses Erskine, where will we bury our loved ones going forward?

There are very few, if any, plots available, Renfrewshire Council must take immediate action to bring our cemetery back to an acceptable standard.

Please sign this petition to have Renfrewshire Council invest in Inchinnan Cemetery, to put it back into an acceptable standard, fit for purpose and where we have no worries about health and safety.
