This amendment follows a trial allowing dogs on-leash into the central business district (CBD) since August 2018. The trial has gone well so now we are looking to make on-leash dog control available permanently.
Consultation on this amendment is now closed. Thank you to everyone who made a submission. Councillors will consider submissions at the August meeting of the Planning and Strategy Committee.
Summary of key changes
The proposed changes to the policy are:
- Deleting references to the trial
- Including the CBD as an on-leash area of control
- Removing the CBD from being a prohibited public place
