Regional appeal board deliberating Corner Brook city council's denial of Country Haven crematorium plans - The Telegram

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The Western Star three days before council's second vote may have been a factor in swaying council's vote. In that story, a woman living near a crematorium in Stephenville, complained about the emissions coming from the facility. The owner of the Stephenville crematorium refuted what the woman was claiming. Likewise, Parsons contends the emissions from the controlled burning of a state-of-the-art crematorium is safer than a backyard barbecue. Parsons also told the board he was asked by the city to hold a public forum with his funeral home's neighbours just days before the vote took place. He said that was an impractical request, given such short notice and it would have had to be held on a weekend. Parsons does want to hold a public forum and will if he gets another chance to add the crematorium to his Country Road property. "They are good neighbours of mine and I would love to educate them about what takes place with a crematorium," Parsons said after Thursday's hearing. "I would have the right people and resources there to answer all their questions." Three residents who live near the funeral home attended the hearing, but none would do an interview after the appeal had been heard. Walters said the board will make its decision on the appeal within 21 days, but would try to make it as soon as possible. Parsons said the demand for cremation has grown significantly in the 19 years he has been in business. In fact, more than half the funerals he directs now involve cremation. The business currently has to cremate bodies in out-of-town locations and wants to offer their own service in-house. It has been suggested that the funeral home build its crematorium in an industrial park area away from residences. Parsons doesn't think that should be necessary. "I just don't think it's appropriate to bring families to a beautiful reposing room at a funeral home and then bring them to cold, sterile industrial park for the cremation," he said. Regardless of the board's decision, Parsons said Country Haven will be pursuing its own crematorium somewhere. "It's got to happen," he said. "The business is just crying out for it." If the issue does go back to council to revisit, he hopes the new council elected since his proposal was rejected will not base its decision on emotions and support staff's initial recommendation to approve it. This is not the only case before the appeal board involving a crematorium. The Town of Deer Lake approved a crematorium for Parsons Funeral Home last October and some residents have appealed that decision, saying it should not be located near homes, schools and other businesses. No date has been scheduled to hear the Deer Lake appeal. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Deer Lake council follows through on appealed decision and formally rejects crematorium application - The Western Star

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The opponents protested outside the town hall during several subsequent council meetings. The decision of council was appealed by residents Kayla Critch and Stephen Brent. In February, the West Newfoundland Regional Appeal Board conducted a hearing of the appeal and eventually decided to reverse council's decision. That set the stage for council to revisit the application, which finally made its way to the council agenda this week. The vote to reject the application was unanimous. Coun. Dave Parsons, who was absent from the public meeting, would not have been permitted to vote if he had been there due to his conflict of interest. Coun. Myra Spence, whose husband's company could have been considered for work on the crematorium project, was deemed to not be in a conflict of interest and was allowed to vote Monday. The appeal board had based its decision on the fact a crematorium is not listed as a permitted or a discretionary use within the Town Centre zone in the town's municipal plan. Mayor Dean Ball said there are likely several undertakings within Town Centre that the municipality has actually approved in the past, but which are not specifically mentioned in the town's plan. He gave the example of the cannabis outlet that recently opened in the area. It was not listed as a specific discretionary use when it was approved since the sale of cannabis has only recently become legal. "This is the first time this has happened to us that I'm aware of," said Ball. "There are lots of things not listed as itemized as discretionary use that we've done in the past. "I guess with this being a bigger issue with a higher profile and closer to people's hearts, the appeal board decided the decision should be reversed." Ball said the original decision was based on information provided by staff and this discretionary use issue was not foreseen. He said Parsons could always apply again, but the mayor doesn't believe that will happen. Parsons could not be reached for comment as of deadline Tuesday to see if he still plans to pursue the crematorium. He has said in the past that, despite the rising demand for a crematorium service in the Deer Lake area, it would not be feasible for his business to build one somewhere other than at the funeral home's location on Main Street. A new municipal plan the town is awaiting approval by the provincial government does specifica...
