A WEST Grinstead business owner has spoken about his ‘disappointment’ that a controversial plan to build a crematorium in the village was refused by Horsham District Council planners.
As previously reported in the County Times, plans to establish a new crematorium just off the A272 Cowfold Road were heard in the Development Control South meeting where members agreed it should be rejected.

Thieves have stolen about 40 brass memorial plaques from the Surrey and Sussex Crematorium.
Sussex Police said the plaques stolen from the crematorium in Balcombe Road, Crawley, had probably been sold to scrap metal dealers.
Insp Zahid Khan said: "Having a plaque stolen from a loved one's grave is clearly a distressing thing to happen."
He appealed for any scrap metal dealers who may have been offered the plaques to come forward with information.
