Planning - The completion of the sale will be subject to the purchaser gaining permission for the new vehicular access and new fencing which is acceptable to Falkirk Council. The existing vehicular access to the property is within a private road running through the cemetery on the north side (Red hatched area in plan). It is to be noted that that the existing access will only continue for a short period from the completion of the sale, to enable the purchaser sufficient time to complete the construction of the new fence and new access to the bungalow as noted above.

The new access to the property will be required to be off Muirhead Road. The new access should be framed by gate piers of appropriate design and materials which is sympathetic to the character and design of the cemetery lodge house. It is envisaged that the surplus stonework and iron fencing that would be removed to create the new access be reused to block up the current driveway.

A planning application for any extension or alterations to the property may also require planning permission and should adhere with Policy HC08 Residential Extensions and Alterations in the Falkirk Local Development Plan 2.
