  • Background

    16 days ago

    Mona Vale Cemetery was established in 1905 and is listed on Council’s Local Heritage register. In 2012, the former Pittwater Council adopted a Plan of Management (PoM) for the Mona Vale Cemetery, which was subsequently adopted by the Minister for Lands in 2013. The PoM noted that as the cemetery is listed as a heritage item on the Local Environment Plan (LEP), there should be a Conservation Management Plan (CMP) in place to allow the continued operation of the cemetery as a place for burials and deposition of cremated remains while retaining and preserving the heritage values of the place.

    The CMP provides an overview of Mona Vale Cemetery within its regional and historical context and highlights the significance of heritage attributes of the cemetery. It also provides policies and practical guidance for a balanced approach to conserving and managing this significance including a schedule of recommended conservation works with priorities for implementation. The historical, associational, aesthetic, cultural and social significance of items has also been explored.

    It also includes comprehensive advice on the conservation methods appropriate for the various types of monuments and monumental fabric in the cemetery, and highlights the need to develop an Interpretive Plan containing strategies for enhanced presentation, interpretation and communication of the Mona Vale Cemetery’s various heritage attributes in the future.
