A DEVELOPMENT that has been talked about for years is now set to become a reality.

It seems work could soon start on Bathurst’s long-awaited crematorium.

The only stumbling block is that council agrees to let the developers roll out the project in two stages..

However, that approval appears to be a mere formality at council’s next ordinary monthly meeting on July 20.

Councillors Bobby Bourke and Greg Westman met with Norwood Park executives last week to discuss the future of the crematorium after concerns were raised that the development was not progressing.

The meeting was also attended by council’s engineering and planning department heads.

Cr Bourke said he came away from the meeting feeling the developers are still committed, providing Bathurst Regional Council gives them permission to divide the $1.5 million project into two stages to help ease financial pressure.
