Dogs on leashes – Public participation needed

CRRA Post Header Dogs on Leashes

Dear Ratepayer & Resident

The following information has been distributed by Subcouncil 20 regarding the public participation process in Ward 62 to determine where dogs may run free, need to be on a leash at all times, or prohibited.


In May 2016 Cllr Liz Brunette tabled a Motion in response to parents and residents complaints  about dogs in  greenbelts and parks that are off leashes and have attacked them, their children, or their dogs.

 Subcouncil 20 is running a participation process whereby members of the public can comment on their proposals for where dogs may be allowed to run free, or are required to be on a leash.  The attached table highlights the various locations and the current proposals.

Additional proposals are:

  • Maximum of three (3) dogs per adult
  • Dogs must be under control at all times
  • Dog handlers must pick up the faeces deposited by their dogs and dispose of it at home.

Public Participation commences on Thursday, 9 March until end of business, Friday, 31 March 2016
