New Dog Control Policy and Bylaw adopted

Published on 12 August 2022


In June, we asked the community for feedback on our Dog Control Policy and Bylaw. 

We received 156 submissions and the new policy has been formally adopted by Council, with one small amendment: it was agreed to remove the discounted registration fee class for ‘Rural’ and include a new ‘stock-herding’ category. 

Both the bylaw and the policy are available on our Animal Services webpage under the ‘Related Information’ section, along with a handy FAQ document that explains a bit about the changes and how they may affect people.
