Draft Dog Management Policy Update

Councillors held the first of two workshops to work through the submissions received during the consultation period for the Draft Dog Management Policy.

Over 250 ideas were submitted via Council’s Our Say forum, and in writing to Council.

The ideas published on Our Say generated a lot of discussion, and this has provided Council with a reasonable insight to what dog owners would like, along with other views from community members.

A second workshop will be held in the near future, where Council will consider potential amendments to the Draft Policy as a result of the consultation process. This Draft will then be presented at a Council meeting for consideration.

Council is committed to developing the best policy for Dog Management in Kingborough that will provide an equitable sharing of public spaces.

Council thanks all members of the community who contributed during the consultation process.
