By-laws - Dog on and Off-Leash and Prohibited Areas

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

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 the following proposed areas:
