The plan introduces four key strategies to guide the future of council’s cemeteries:

  1. Ensure that council is responsive to change, and maintains sufficient land and facilities to meet the current and future needs of the region.
  2. Maintain and improve cemetery facilities as an essential community service, and enhance the cultural value, community awareness and benefits of cemetery services and facilities.
  3. Investigate and implement efficiency targets.
  4. Take advantage of opportunities to advance cemetery services.

The Sunshine Coast Cemetery Plan 2012-2027 contains a 15-year action plan to achieve these strategies.
