Draft Cemetery Master Plan Concept Layout

Moree Plains Shire Council, in conjunction with Gardner Wetherill & Associates and Matthew Higginson Landscaping, have prepared a Master Plan for the existing Moree Cemetery and the southern extension.  Council is seeking valuable feedback from the community regarding the concept layout.   

Engineering Support Manager Fiona McClymont said ‘information gathered from the recent community survey had been taken into consideration in this development of the draft concept layout’.  Council is keen to hear practical responses regarding the layout, from the community.

“I believe that the draft concept layout that has been developed for the Moree Cemetery Master Plan is attuned to the location and will provide a number of options for services and interments into the future.  “It will provide an attractive, peaceful and respectful facility for mourners and visitors” she said.

The draft concept layout will be on display for 28 days and members of the public are welcome to view the concept plan at the following locations:

  • · Council Display Windows in the Max Arcade
  • · Moree Regional Library
  • · Dhiiyaan Aboriginal Centre
  • · Boggabilla & Mungindi Offices
  • · Council’s website www.mpsc.nsw.gov.au
  • · Council’s Facebook pages

Any comments may be submitted to Council by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or PO Box 420, Moree 2400 by 5.00pm on Wednesday 8 August 2018.

Have Your Say - The NSW Government and the Murray-Darling Basin Authority have released the updated NSW cap factors for public consultation

The NSW Government and the Murray-Darling Basin Authority have released the updated NSW cap factors for public consultation.

These cap factors (also known as the long-term diversion limit equivalent factors) are established to accurately assess how much water has been recovered for the environment and to guide future water recovery decisions.

These factors do not have any impact on entitlements or water allocation.

This is an update to the 2011 factors. New information has now been considered to ensure the factors provide a consistent accounting system mechanism to ensure water recovery has occurred as planned.

Have your say

To find out more about cap factors and download the consultation and technical papers, visit the Public consultation on water recovery accounting factors web page.

Submissions close at 5pm, 17 July 2018.

You can make a submission online or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
