This consultation has concluded.

Have your say on the management of dogs and cats in your community.

Alexandrina Council’s draft 5-year Animal Management Plan is now available for viewing and comment as part of a broad community engagement strategy.

The proposed plan will enable achievement of Council requirements under the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995.

The aim of the Draft Plan is to ensure Council's legislative requirements can be achieved within Council’s existing resources, while still having the capacity for other projects which meet the needs of the Alexandrina community.

Key features:

  • Maintain high standards of animal care and professional services
  • Continue public safety and education around issues with dogs and cats to better align with statewide concessions
  • Removal of the non-statutory working dog concession
  • Formal recognition of Council's feral cat program
  • Continue support of off-leash dog areas but less specific in relation to fenced dag parks
  • Re-scoping of cat management objectives to ensure these can be met within existing resources

Get involved by taking a short survey.

Consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 15 February, 2013.
