Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No



The Bereavement Services Manager presented  a report which sought approval for the proposed programme of meetings for 2023-24.


She stated that the memorandum of agreement for the crematorium stated that the Joint Committee held at least two meetings in a municipal year, one of which must be the annual general meeting.

The first meeting of the Joint Committee after the annual meetings of Councils shall be the joint committee’s annual general meeting, and that's the meeting that the Joint committee will elect, a chairman and the vice chairman for the ensuring year. She stated that the Joint committee may hold as many other meetings at such intervals as they as they find necessary or convenient and proceeded to propose a series of dates.


The Chairperson inquired the possibility of a site visit so that the committee could look at the proposals and see the operations and renovation work in progress.


The Bereavement Services Manager stated that they normally try to undertake a site visit prior to the Annual General Meeting.

In response to a query from a member as to whether the site visit can be undertaken upon completion of the flower court, the Bereavement Services Manager stated that the extension work with the flower court is not expected to be completed prior to the AGM and is more likely to be completed towards September 2023. She said she however felt that a site visit would be beneficial particularly as there were newly elected members on the joint committee who had not had a tour of the facilities before.
