Mayor’s Message – 10 September 2019


Mayor’s Message – 10 September 2019

Residents are reminded that they only have until this afternoon to provide their comments on the revised Dog Management Policy.

The policy outlines Council’s approach and responsibilities for dog management and control.

Council is committed to promoting responsible dog ownership.

Dog ownership has many important benefits to the community through companionship, health promotion, general well-being as well as their use as working dogs.

But all dog owners have a legal and ethical responsibility to their dogs and to the wider community.   Irresponsible dog ownership can affect the physical and social environment of other residents.

The Dog Management Policy is provided to assist dog owners to minimise any negative impacts on the community.

It is also designed to provide information on responsible dog ownership, identify areas within the municipal area which are available for exercising dogs and areas where dogs are restricted or prohibited.

The policy also outlines Council’s approach and responsibilities for dog management and control.

A copy of the policy can be found at the Have your Say tab on Council’s website at

 The comment period will close at 4 p.m.

Written responses can also be emailed to [email protected]
