Gov't seeks feedback on revised Private Columbaria Ordinance

The public can send feedback until 2 June.

The government launched a public consultation on the proposed amendments to the Private Columbaria Ordinance.

The government is proposing an extension of pre-cut-off columbaria operations, a penalty for non-compliance and the sale of interment rights and unapproved niches.

The amendments aim to rectify previous violations before the licensing scheme whilst avoiding social disruption. It also addresses the impact of pre-cut-off Columbaria on nearby traffic, environment, neighbourhoods, and town planning procedures.

The consultation is open from 2 May to 2 June.
