Current engagement projects

We are currently consulting with the community on a number of projects.

Planning Scheme Amendment to rezone land at 150 Macclesfield Road, Avonsleigh

The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (GMCT) is pursuing a Planning Scheme Amendment request to rezone land at 150 Macclesfield Road, Avonsleigh VIC 3782 from Rural Conservation Zone (RCZ2) to Public Use Zone (PUZ5).

We also propose to update the zoning of the Emerald Cemetery from Public Use Zone 7 (PUZ7) to Public Use Zone 5 (PUZ5), which is the correct zone for a cemetery.

The changed land use will allow GMCT to expand the existing Emerald Cemetery and transition the land at 150 Macclesfield Road to a quiet and green, reflective space.

We commenced construction of Fawkner Memorial Park's new public mausoleum in May 2020. This new mausoleum will be located adjacent to the Atrium of Holy Angels mausoleum and will harmoniously complement the Holy Angels mausoleum.

We are responding to market demand and planning to build an extension to the Gallery of the Saints Mausoleum at Keilor Cemetery.
