Consultation has concluded

We recognise the health and wellbeing benefits to our community and their dogs through access to dog exercise areas.    

Background

Council is responsible for the management of public open space, this includes dog off leash areas.

The draft Dog Off-Leash policy provides a strategic, structured, and integrated approach in planning and managing dog activities in our public open spaces. It will guide dog owners and handlers on how to manage dogs in public spaces and their legal requirements and responsibilities to ensure that these areas can be enjoyed by the whole community.

The policy aligns with the Bayside Keeping of Animals Policy 2020, it does not include other companion animals as specified in the Companion Animals Act 1998 (e.g. cat ownership).
