Initiative circle: objections were "completely ineffective"
The initiative group is disappointed that its warnings and objections to a burial forest have apparently been "completely ineffective" so far with the landowner and potential cemetery operator, paul graf von schonborn, and the city of volkach, which has applied for approval of a cemetery. "How can it be explained that the city of volkach unanimously submits and agrees to plans for the construction of a natural cemetery at the constitutional sow without knowing about these plans??", states the opinion.
"We as a city are dispassionate about the matter", explains volkach's mayor peter kornell in response to a question from this editor. Volkach has enough cemeteries. The city has made the request only because this is not possible from the private side. They just wanted to support the possible operator here, says kornell.
Mayor: plan for burial forest as good as buried
According to the mayor, the city has not yet received any feedback from the potential operator of the cemetery on how to proceed now that the nature conservation authority in the district office has rejected the submitted cemetery plans. It is planned to present revised plans to the town council. However, according to kornell, "I see little chance of realization".
