CCANSW member Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council (QPRC) is proposing a new cemetery for the city of Qeanbeyan in New South Wales.
Council has prepared a Planning Proposal to provide for a new memorial park/cemetery on land at 1241 Old Cooma Road, Googong.
The planning proposal in effect will amend Queanbeyan Local Environmental Plan 2012 by adding the term ‘cemetery’ to Schedule 1 Additional Permitted Uses for these particular lots. The site is currently zoned E4 Environmental Living and a cemetery is not permitted with consent in the land use table.
As part of the Planning Proposal, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment requested that Council undertake a number of studies on the land being considered for a proposed Memorial Park.
Council will be holding a community meeting on 15 September at 6.30pm.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the meeting will be held online via Zoom. All participants, whether wishing to make a presentation or just view the meeting, will need to register prior to the meeting. Registered participants will be provided with Zoom details and instructions 24 hours before the meeting.
