Cemeteries Operational Plan and Cemetery Management Policy

Council adopted the Cemeteries Operational Plan and the Cemetery Management Policy at its meeting of 20 February 2024.

The purpose of the documents is to guide Council's approach to the day-to-day operation of Sedgefield and Jerrys Plains cemeteries, covering tributes, maintenance, and visitation in keeping with the reverence of these sites.

The documents also respond to the NSW Government's Interment Industry Scheme licencing requirements.

Both the Policy and Operational Plan reflect and provide further detail about the terms and conditions that have always been in place for the Sedgefield and Jerrys Plains cemeteries.

This includes requirements for the placement of tributes and keepsakes at the cemeteries to avoid unnecessary distress to other families, and ensure that maintenance can be undertaken safely and without damage to tributes and keepsakes.

Unfortunately, items such as glass (containers or jars), furniture, other large items and items that restrict lawn maintenance, pose a risk to public safety or may cause offense may not be left at the cemeteries. In these cases, and where possible and appropriate, Council will contact the interment right holder or next of kin before taking any action on compliance with these requirements.

Families may place two small items of commemoration on lawn beams and/or monuments in accordance with the details outlined in the documents. You can find the documents here.

If you have any questions or would like further information about the Cemeteries Operational Plan and the Cemetery Management Policy, please contact 02 6578 7290.
