COUNCILLORS have put off making a decision for a 'green' cemetery in Huddersfield.
Reports from English Heritage and the Environment Agency are still needed before Kirklees Council's Huddersfield area planning committee can decide whether to give the go-ahead to the proposals at Birkby Hall Road, Birkby.
Businessman Michael Brook has applied for a burial ground in the grounds of his home, Rose Hill.
There would be about 100 burials a year with bodies interred in simple shrouds and laid to rest without headstones.
School governors from neighbouring St Patrick's Catholic Primary School are among objectors to the plans.
They say it would be "unpleasant" for pupils to see the burials.
The council has also received several letters of objection from local people to the proposals for the five-acre meadow that could hold up to 4,000 plots.
Views from English Heritage are needed because Mr Brook's home is a grade two listed building.
And the Environment Agency needs to report on whether ground water would be contaminated.
Previous applications have been rejected because of poor access, but entry arrangements have been changed in the latest plans.
