Council approved the release of its Draft Cemetery and Crematorium Policy recently for final consultation.
The draft policy was necessary after Council, in 2011, revoked policies relating to ashes interment, burial plot reservation and the use of available gravesites.
Changes in the Local Government Act 2009 and the adoption of Local Laws No. 1 - Administration and Local Laws No. 4 - Council Controlled Land and Road Reserves prompted the revocation.
Gladstone Regional Council would like to encourage the Community and Funeral Directors to review the policy and submit any feedback in writing to Council by 21 March 2014.
Submissions must be made in writing by mail to Gladstone Regional Council, Parks and Environment Department, P.O Box 29, Gladstone QLD 4680 or email email@example.com
You can view the Draft Cemetery and Crematorium Policy here.
Hard copies are also available by phoning Council's Parks and Environment Department on 4977 6899.
Please do not hesitate to contact Council's Parks and Environment Department on 07 4977 6884 should you have any further questions.
