Development of a new Hindu faith crematorium at the site of an existing Swaminarayan Temple.

The new crematorium building has been constructed within the Greater London Green Belt area, adjacent to the M40 trunk road, and is located wholly within Flood Zone 2 and partially within Flood Zone 3. The site is home to Anoopam Mission UK, part of a global Hindu charitable organisation headquartered in the Gujarat region of India.

Proposed Site Layout

Dice carried out a full Flood Risk Assessment and Drainage Strategy of the site, which is within Flood Zone 2 (with between a 1:1000 and 1:100 probability of fluvial flooding a year, hence it's considered to be at medium risk of surface water flooding). This included considering existing drainage infrastructure, producing a detailed Flood Risk assessment, designing a drainage/SUDS strategy to support outline planning permission and producing drainage/SUDS layout drawings.

The development includes a new single storey building that has been built to be used as a new crematorium, as well as changing the use of the surrounding area to create memorial gardens, while still ensuring the space is fit for purpose with practical elements such as coach parking and space for hearse arrival. The development also included extending the existing temple.
