Dogs on beaches changes on public exhibition

Eurobodalla Council’s revised draft Companion Animal Management Plan, which includes proposed changes to dog exercise areas throughout the shire, is now on public exhibition.

Councillors have passed a recommendation to publicly exhibit the draft plan for 28 days to seek further community feedback. Submissions close on Tuesday 4 September 2018

This follows a large-scale review that involved extensive community engagement in April, after which Council revised its initial proposed changes to better reflect the community’s views. The draft plan has almost doubled the number of 24/7 off-leash areas and recommends off-leash areas increasing from 15 locations to 29, with proposed timeshare off-leash zones for 17 areas. Beaches where dogs are be prohibited will remain at 12 by the proposal. The plan recommends three additional off-leash areas at Surf Beach, Nelligen, Dalmeny and a trial at the Hanging Rock sporting complex. It is proposed that dogs will remain prohibited from fields where formal community sports are played however there is the possibility, if adopted, that dogs will be allowed on-leash on the sidelines, associated access tracks and non-playing field areas.

Following exhibition of the document a further report will be presented to Council presenting consideration of any additional issues raised by the community and recommending adoption.
