On display until 14 January 2022, 12:00 AM

Provide your feedback on the Draft Memorials and Plaques in Open Spaces Policy.

The policy will help us manage requests for installing commemorative plaques, memorials and monuments in public spaces outside of cemeteries.

It will also provide guidance about what options are available for memorials in open space areas.

Draft policy aims

  • To ensure the design and placement of memorials and plaques is consistent with the community interest.
  • To ensure the placement of memorials and plaques does not result in locations reaching saturation point, or interfere with the intended purposes of the region’s parks, gardens, and open spaces.
  • To ensure that memorials and plaques do not impact negatively on the future maintenance expenditure of Council.
  • To ensure the placement of any memorials and plaques does not present a safety risk now or in the future.

Council on 28 October 2021 resolved to endorse the exhibition of the Draft Policy - Memorials in Open Space. The Draft Memorials and plaques in open spaces Policy is on exhibition for a period of more than 28 days.
