Reports, Plans & Policies

As a Statutory Authority of the State Government we are committed to a strong corporate governance framework that is open and transparent. As part of our commitment we have made available a range of reports, plans and policies.

Specifically in relation to our Floral Tributes Policy, our cemeteries are shared public areas and as such, those wishing to memorialise at sites should be familiar with this Policy. 

In the final week of each calendar month, floral tributes are gathered from each garden and placed on racks to allow us to perform required maintenance such as mowing. Tributes are stored on the racks for a period of four weeks and within this timeframe may be retrieved and replaced by families if desired.

The Floral Tributes Policy is available in its entirety below.
