We’ve reviewed our Dog Control Policy and Bylaw 2016.
We held an online survey from 5 to 17 January 2021 asking you if our existing dog exercise areas were meeting your furry friend’s needs. We listened to your feedback and proposed some new dog exercise areas around the district. We asked for further feedback on our proposed policy and bylaw from 12 February to 12 March. The Council held hearings and deliberations on the feedback received on 30 March 2021, and adopted the final policy and bylaw on 28 April.
The 1 October opening date for our new off-leash dog exercise areas has been pushed out slightly due to Lockdown delays and the recent heavy rains which prevented planting of new grass seed. A new opening date will be announced soon. We apologise for any convenience. Our established off-leash areas are open as usual.
We considered your feedback at a meeting held in March.
The opportunity to provide written feedback period has now closed.
