How are proposals for memorials to be assessed under the draft policy?
The draft public Memorials Policy sets out a series of criteria for the assessment of proposals for memorials on Council controlled land or buildings. These criteria need to be addressed in writing by the individual or group proposing the memorial. These criteria include:
- The relationship of the person, group or event to the place where the memorial is proposed;
- The nature of the proposed memorial;
- The character and uses of the space in which the proposed memorial is to be located;
- It does not pose a safety risk, or increase the maintenance requriements of the proposed location; and
- Will not invite vandalism.
Individuals or groups who are proposing a public memorial should address these criteria, as outlined in the draft policy, in writing at the time of submission.
