New memorial fee proposals under consultation

The new fee, if endorsed by the council, would ensure the safety of graveyard memorials through routine inspections, according to Orkney Islands Council.

Grieving families may face a new £50 permit fee for graveyard memorials, if national proposals are endorsed by Orkney Islands Council.

The measure would require that before memorials are erected, a permit must be applied for to ensure their construction and installation are of a satisfactory standard.
