The sale of Bretby Crematorium could take place after the local elections in May.
The news came after it was revealed that no date had yet been set to make a decision over the controversial sale, and elections are little over a month away.
South Derbyshire District Council approved the £8 million sale at its finance and management meeting on March 17, while delegated powers have been handed to Tory councillor Richard Grosvenor, leader of East Staffordshire Borough Council.
Conservatives at the district council unanimously voted to sell off the asset, while Labour councillors voted against.
Das Krematorium der Landeshauptstadt arbeitet kostendeckend, allerdings drücken Zinsen und Tilgung laufender Kredite die Bilanz ins Minus. Im Jahr 1996 war der kommunale Betrieb für fünf Millionen D-Mark errichtet worden, ein Kredit der erst im Jahr 2030 abgetragen sein wird. Schon heute kämpft das im bundesweiten Vergleich kleine Krematorium um seine Existenz. Seine zwei Öfen sind nur zur Hälfte ausgelastet: Etwa 1500 Einäscherungen finden dort pro Jahr statt.
El promotor, que rechazó dos ubicaciones propuestas por el Ayuntamiento, mantiene el proyecto y dice que los habitantes «ni se enterarán» del horno.
Los habitantes del barrio de Santa Catalina en Agones (Pravia) tienen un nuevo frente común. El anuncio de que el tanatorio de la villa, ubicado en frente de sus casas, ampliará próximamente sus instalaciones y acogerá un horno crematorio ha alertado a los vecinos de esta barriada, que ven en las emisiones del dispositivo una clara amenaza para su calidad de vida.

Mementos left on graves at Canford Crematorium have been removed because they were making the site "messy".
A big pile of ornaments and flower pots lies on the grass alongside the Westbury-on-Trym graveyard, angering mourners who placed them at the resting place of their loved ones.
Bristol City Council, who are responsible for the site in Canford Road, said relatives were given ample notice that the mementos would be removed after letters were received from some saying the area of the graves had become "messy".

A crematorium will undergo a £1.1 million revamp to help make it more environmentally-friendly.
Work on the Masonhill Crematorium in Ayr, which began last week, aims to make the venue one of the most sustainable in Scotland.
New, more energy-efficient furnaces will be installed at Masonhill, which is owned by South Ayrshire Council.
The major improvement programme involves the introduction of “abatement” equipment, that will filter out mercury, dioxins and other harmful emissions from being released into the atmosphere.

Heat from Aldershot Crematorium’s furnaces could be used to keep the water at Aldershot Lido warm, a meeting has heard.
Rushmoor Borough Council is trying to make the lido viable as it tries to deal with a £2.4m cut to the council’s government grant.
At a meeting of its leisure and youth panel on Monday, a councillor said using the crematorium’s furnaces to help heat the lido and the indoor Aldershot Swimming Pools Complex might be an option.
A council in Worcestershire made headlines in January when it became the first council in the country to do this.
At Monday’s meeting, Cllr Eric Neal said this had been discussed at Rushmoor in previous years during earlier efforts to make the lido more financially viable.

Trinkets and presents left at a communal baby memorial have been dumped after council bosses branded them 'inappropriate'.
Grieving parents were furious when they found toys, flowers and mementoes were removed without their permission or knowledge by South Tyneside Council.
Many parents with memorials for children at South Shields Crematorium had left tributes and trinkets at plaques bearing the names of their loved ones.
But now they have been swept up and dumped at the back of the crematorium next to rubbish bins.
One group of mums say they are stunned how anyone could be so heartless.
