Rainham Parkland Cemetery
LLA are pleased to be developing what will be the UK’s first modern landscape led, multi-faith cemetery which will be opening in 2021 and will provide much needed burial space and will have nature and landscape at its heart.
The development company, Elysium, bought the land next to the Rainham Jewish Cemetery in Upminster Road North from the Federation of Synagogues in 2017. With preliminary ground works continuing at pace the scheme has been developed as a multi-faith cemetery with Roman Catholicism, Islam and Judaism. Working closely with the client team LLA produced an integrated masterplan to convey the design quality and overall approach to the local authority and statutory consultees.
Being set within the green belt the scheme was designed with green credentials, encompassing a bespoke chapel with strategic views across the cemetery and beyond into the wider countryside.
