Trial for dog exercise areas at Long Beach

Eurobodalla Council is asking the Long Beach community for its views about a trial change to dog exercise areas in the beachside village.

If the trial proceeds, the beach area to the west of the toilet block will an off leash area for the purpose of exercising dogs, except over December and January when dogs must be on a leash between 9am and 5pm. The area to the east of the toilet block will be prohibited to dogs.

The changes are proposed on a trial basis while Council’s full review of the Companion Animal Management Plan is underway, due for completion in 2018.

Residents have until the 29 December to let Council know their views on the proposed trial.

Council’s Companion Animal Management Plan 2015-2019 details on and off leash, timeshare and prohibited arrangements across the Eurobodalla and aims to balance the needs of pet owners, the community and the environment.

Council agreed earlier this year to bring forward its review of the Companion Animal Management Plan to commence late in 2017.

This will allow the community to have a broader discussion next year about animal management and dog exercise areas across the whole of the Eurobodalla, ensuring safety, consistency and the balancing of community needs.

Submissions from residents about the Long Beach trial will assist in the review.

More information about the proposed trial at Long Beach is on Council’s website under ‘Public Exhibition’. Hard copies are also available at Eurobodalla’s three libraries and at the Customer Service Centre in Moruya.

Submissions close on 29 December and can be made by emailing, using the feedback form on Council’s website and by writing to Eurobodalla Shire Council, PO Box 99, Moruya NSW 2537.

It is important that dog owners have their pets under their care and control at all times for both the safety of their pets and the general public. Council’s website has maps and information about where pet owners can take their dogs on the shire’s beaches – search dogs on beaches
