PROPOSED CEMETERY, GORSEINON
The site is tiered but is easy to access and is on the edge of a settlement.

The site has a number of coal outcrops.
The site is next to Toyoda Gosei, a large manufacturing business and a major local employer.
It has no infrastructure, is not enclosed and would need sub-dividing.
In terms of the Unitary Development Plan, the site is within a green wedge and as it has been allocated for cemetery use it would only be considered for housing if no other sites were available.
The site is overlooked by some houses.
There are concerns about potential community cohesion issues.
None of the traveller families have said they would be prepared to use the site.
There are petitions opposing the plan containing 2,666 names.
