About the Hillsborough Cemetery Concept Plan

This consultation closed on Friday 30 August 2019.

Thank you for having your say.

We received 21 online submissions and one made in person.

Key themes from the feedback

  • Butterfly-friendly planting.
  • Detailed access and circulation.
  • Maintenance, vandalism, pests and weeds.
  • Additional lighting.
  • Support for improvements.

Changes made from the feedback

  • Plan notes and key have been updated to recommend increased interpretive signage.
  • General notes have been added around butterfly friendly planting. We followed up with biodiversity.
  • around the use of ongaonga (nettle) for butterflies. This is acceptable if it is in areas that people don’t typically access.
  • Connection points at Goodall and Hoskins streets have been improved.
  • More pedestrian crossings have been added to internal roads.
  • Pram crossings have been added to the existing footpaths.
  • The inner carpark has been adjusted to cut down on hardstand and increase planting greening.
  • Bicycle racks have bee added.

Next steps

The plan has been finalised for adoption in February 2020.
