Cemeteries Policy Update
The North Burnett Regional Council maintains and operates a number of cemeteries across our region, providing a combination of Monumental sections, Lawn sections and Columbarium walls. We recognise the heritage value of each cemetery and acknowledge that these facilities are special resting places for our communities.
We have amended General Policy 252 – Cemeteries to include:
- Introduction of partial slab, reducing the financial imposition on residents who wish to be buried in monumental sections.
- Change from mandatory timeframes to recommended timeframes for monumental works, allowing families to erect monuments at their preference.
These amendments to the policy seek to improve our cemeteries administration process and choice for families farewelling loved ones.
