Burial on private property

Council’s Subordinate Local Law No 1, Schedule 19 permits the burial or disposal of human remains outside of a cemetery.

A private property burial application form (PDF,177kB) is required to be submitted to Council to gain approval to conduct a burial on rural private property.

Approval will generally be granted if it is justified by association with the property where the remains are to be buried or placed. Justified association can include a special family, personal, cultural or historical association between the deceased person and the property.
