Cemeteries—spaces(Question No 551)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 11 February 2010:

(1) How many available burial internments are there at (a) Woden, (b) Gungahlin and (c) Hall cemeteries.

(2) How many available spaces are there for ashes internment at (a) Woden, (b) Gungahlin and (c) Hall cemeteries.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) (a) 1,850

(b) 15,000

(c) About 30

(2) (a) 5,500

(b) 30,000

(c) Not quantified but many hundreds

The above numbers are estimates and are somewhat dependent on how areas are laid out and how intensively the available space is used. This is particularly the case for Gungahlin Cemetery which has large areas of unused space and therefore a great deal of flexibility. Conversely Woden has very little space and little flexibility. The estimates are based on allowing for the same aesthetics and structural framework currently employed on each site.

Note that the numbers for ashes internments are very large. This is because most gardens and shrub borders can be attractively and sympathetically used for the development of memorial gardens.

(2) Is the Minister planning any action in relation to the survey results.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
