Roadside and Urban Open Space Memorial Policy


Roadside memorials are an opportunity to acknowledge the memory of loved ones who have lost their lives on ACT roads. Memorials in urban open spaces are an opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of individuals and significant events in the history and development of Canberra.

Details of the requirements for placing memorials in urban open spaces and roadside are outlined in the Roadside and Urban Open Space Memorial Policy.

Applications are required for the placement of memorials in urban open spaces.

While roadside memorials do not require an application they must meet requirements, specified within the policy and are not permitted along the light rail corridor due to safety reasons.

For more information please see the Roadside and Urban Open Space Memorial Policy (PDF) (Word) or contact 13 22 81.
