Plans to start a 'green' cemetery will go before Tendring DC next month, reports the East Anglian Daily Times (p15).

Last November John Acton unveiled his scheme to open a graveyard free of headstones and other funereal paraphernalia where instead people would be buried in a quiet wooland.

A tree would be planted for every person buried, thus gradually forming a woodland of broadleaf trees up to maximum density of 600 people and trees per acre. This would accommode 4,000 bodies over the 7-acre plot.
