Hi - We represent the membership organisation ''; set up to oppose the proposed 85-acre cemetery in Oswaldtwistle - which if approved will remove the greenbelt which separates Oswaldtwistle from Blackburn.
There are now THREE ways to give your support ...
  • Become a Donor - Wherever you live, whatever your motivation, if you want to help our organisation raise funds, we would welcome your support.  These monies will go towards instructing professional support from a number of organisations that specialise in these types of cases.  
  • Become a Member - Go to the website ( and apply to become a member.  All members MUST live in the parish ward of St Oswalds in Oswaldwtisle and Blackburn, or within Oswaldtwistle, as these communities will be directly affected by this planning being approved. Your name will be included as part of the 'collective voice'.
  • Become a Supporter - Go to the website ( and apply to become a supporter.  You don't need to live in the area, but may just feel passionate about the cemetery not being built for one of many reasons.
The group has been set up to respond as a collective of residents, with expert advice and representation from legal, planning consultants and landscape specialists; all of whom come at a premium.
We have therefore set a target of £30,000, to enable us to pursue this at the highest level.
Thank you to those who are getting involved - we appreciate everything you are all doing!
If we are successful and there are funds remaining, this will be used to re-invest in a community project.
