Please note this submission period has now closed.  

What is this about? 

Council is taking some time to step back and think about how we will manage Council-owned Cemeteries in the Manawatū District for the next 50 years. This includes the following Cemeteries:

  • Feilding Cemetery
  • Halcombe Cemetery
  • Kimbolton Cemetery
  • Pohangina Cemetery
  • Rangiwahia Cemetery
  • Rongotea Cemetery
  • Sandon Cemetery
  • Waituna West Cemetery

The Draft Cemeteries Management Strategy aims to respect the past, be responsive in the present, and prepare for the future!
