The Symonds Street Cemetery is located on both side of Symonds Street and bounded by Karangahape Road, the Southern and North/Western Motorways and St Martins Lane, within the Auckland CBD.
The Symonds Street Cemetery was the City of Auckland's earliest cemetery, established in 1841-42, and has a high heritage value.
The objective of this project is to renew paths that are currently in poor condition and hazardous in some areas, and also to improve the amenity value of the cemetery for the general public. The run down condition of parts of the cemetery and the fact that some pathways are not clearly apparent have discouraged use and appreciation of the historic cemetery.
The project will not alter the existing path layout, much of which reflects the original layout. Some changes to path alignments in the northwest corner of the Wesleyan section may need to be made in the future due to sections of the paths being laid over existing graves, but as the existing layout does not reflect the original, the relocation will not compromise heritage values.
