    10 days ago

    Through a previous resolution of Council, dogs are currently required to be on-leash between 10am and 6pm when being exercised on any reserve or coastal foreshore area across the district. Community feedback obtained through consultation on Council’s Animal Management Plan indicates that there is some community support to alter this blanket requirement and to instead provide some defined dog off-leash exercise areas and dog prohibited areas within reserves or foreshore locations.

    We are seeking feedback on 14 proposed areas. View the proposed areas here.

    Feedback is also sought on the introduction of changes to standard dog on-leash time during daylight savings (8am - 8pm) for reserves and foreshore areas which are not identified in the table above.On Council reserves and beaches that are not included in the list above, the current 10am - 6pm on-leash requirements apply.

    Consultation closes at 5pm on Wednesday, 26 July 2017.

  • By-laws - Camping on Local Government Land and Mooring at Council Jetties

    10 days ago

    Outside of designated caravan parks, Council currently has had no areas of local government land where camping is lawfully permitted. There are also currently no restrictions in relation to mooring at jetties or pontoons attached to Council land. These are areas of frequent concern raised by community to Council and the following proposals seek to find a balance between the reasonable use of local government land by our community and concerns associated with the current inability to regulate or enforce restrictions.

    Council is seeking feedback on a proposal to allow camping for a maximum 72 hour period at Frank Potts Reserve in Langhorne Creek. This location has recently had upgrade works done to provide suitable infrastructure and is currently being used in this manner, making it reasonable to provide the legal mechanism to support camping (with conditions) at this location.

    It is also proposed to define three key zoned areas of mooring throughout the Council area (Goolwa, Clayton Bay and Milang) and that mooring within each zone be limited to a maximum of 24 hours, with a non-return period of 72 hours. This would ensure that vessels moored within the district could not remain permanently moored without at least a short period outside of the district or utilising alternative mooring facilities. The proposal seeks to find a suitable balance between the reasonable use of public mooring and support for local businesses who provide commercial mooring facilities for vessels staying for longer periods of time.

    Have your say on this proposal by filling out a feedback form or emailing your feedback to alex@alexandrina.sa.gov.au.
