Can a grant of a burial licence in a council-managed cemetery be refused if the applicant doesn't meet the "local connection" criteria?
A community cemetery advisory committee has recommended that Council should refuse to grant a burial licence in a council-managed cemetery if the applicant doesn't meet the "local connection criteria. The cemetery in question is on Crown Land and mainly provides for the needs of a small community.
Would such restrictions on burial procurement be legal under NSW legislation or regulation?
