Gold Coast Cemetery Masterplanning
Like many Australian cities the Gold Coast is reviewing future capacity at its cemeteries. As a result the Better Cities Group and Byron Artelier were commissioned to build a strategy to enable generational cemetery capacity for the Gold Coast community - the Gold Coast Cemetery Generations Plan.
This plan delivered regeneration plans for three existing sites, expansion of two existing sites and masterplanning for two new opportunities. This was supported by demographic research identifying required need for the short, medium and long term.
Commercial and place making opportunities were also defined as a means of broadening the community use of cemetery sites and off setting capital and ongoing maintenance costs.
