The Port Vila Municipal Council (PVMC) plans to allocate six hectares at Etas area for Port Vila's new cemetery.
The six hectares is part of the 48 hectares of land that the PVMC acquired at Etas.
The Bouffa Landfill (dumpsite) is also within the 48 hectares of land.
Town Planner at the Port Vila Council, Samson Jerry said the land mass for the proposed cemetery site at Etas is almost the same size of the existing Cemetery in Port Vila.
The proposed site of the cemetery is included in the Port Vila Municipality Plan for the next 10 years.
