Waverley Cemetery is an iconic, heritage site, and Council has been working hard to ensure it can be preserved by undertaking:

  • a comprehensive review of the condition of the Cemetery infrastructure, and
  • a major study of the options for the future business direction of this unique and valuable site and service.

We’ve also been gradually building up some of the funds necessary for restoration of vital Cemetery assets such as fencing, gates, retaining walls, roads, paths, drains, shelters and buildings.

The aim is to preserve the character and heritage of this beautiful site, provide the interment services needed, and ensure the Cemetery has funds for it to be maintained in the future.

New boundary fence

Waverley Cemetery is considering options for a new boundary fence and we want to know what you think.

The new fencing will improve security and access at the cemetery and be in line with the Waverley Cemetery Plan of Management.

Council resolved in February 2013 to develop options for the new fencing. These options were presented at the 16 July 2013 Council meeting, where Council resolved to consult the community on a proposed fencing solution and associated works (including formalising parking near the entry to the cemetery). See the 16 July 2013 Council report here.

Submissions have now closed for this consultation. Thank you to those who responded to our online survey. Results of the consultation will be made available here shortly.
