The Catholic Weekly writes "Catholic cemetery operators have accused NSW Property Minister, Melinda Pavey of leading an ongoing war on religious groups by continuing her push for faith-based groups to be removed from the management of cemeteries in Sydney."
The Minister last month issued a notice to the Catholic Metropolitan Cemeteries and Crematoria Trust (CMCT) that it would be placed into administration on Friday 1 October 2021, which has now been extended until 30 December 2021.
Lismore City Council has reopened the Office at the Lismore Memorial Gardens on Skyline Road in Goonellabah.
Called the Lismore Memorial Gardens, Crematorium and Cemeteries Office it provides a respectful space to discuss burials at the Lismore Memorial Gardens and rural cemeteries, cremations, memorial services and memorisation and plaques.
A review into the cemetery and crematoria sector has identified that Greater Sydney is running out of burial space.
The review recommended that cemeteries be assessed as State Significant Development (SSD).
The department is proposing changes that would see large-scale new and expanded cemeteries assessed as SSD. Larger scale cemeteries have the potential to make a substantial contribution to resolving the shortage of burial space in Greater Sydney.
These changes would mean larger cemetery development proposals would be recognised in the same way as other key social infrastructure such as hospitals and schools, through the SSD assessment pathway.
"Rumours are rife in the sector about Perrottet’s activism on the curious issue of cemetery management, most conspicuously trotting Catholic Archbishop Anthony Fisher to meetings with Gladys Berejiklian, when she was premier."

Web conferencing may be used as an umbrella term for various types of online collaborative services including web seminars ("webinars"), webcasts, and peer-level web meetings. It may also be used in a more narrow sense to refer only to the peer-level web meeting context, in an attempt to disambiguate it from the other types of collaborative sessions. Terminology related to these technologies is inexact, and no generally agreed upon source or standards organization exists to provide an established usage reference.
