Consultations Unpacked: The Legal Framework for Burial and Cremation in NZ

Council of Social Services Dunedin & Dunedin Community Law Centre invite you to a community forum to discuss the Law Commission Issues Paper: The Legal Framework for Burial and Cremation in New Zealand and assist with formulating a submission due by 20th December.

This is the first substantial review of New Zealand’s burial and cremation laws, and the terms of reference are deliberately broad. As a result of this forum we will put together a submission which addresses local issues on burial and cremation – and we are very keen to hear your stories and views on burial and cremation in NZ.

The forum is from [new date] 12 – 1:30 Thursday 5 December 2013 at Dunedin Community House, 301 Moray Place, Dunedin 9016

The new date is to allow for the Law Commission meeting on the subject on Thursday 28 November from 1.00pm –3.00pm at Otago Museum, Kakapo Room, 419 Great King Street, North Dunedin.

We’ve prepared a discussion paper you can download as a PDF including a list of questions the Review is looking to address:
