Domestic Animal Management Plan 2018-2021

This engagement is open

Date: Tuesday, 28 November 2017 to Tuesday, 26 December 2017

Councils are required to develop and review a Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) every four years. The DAMP sets out to promote responsible pet ownership and protect the community and the environment from nuisance dogs and cats.

A community consultation process was undertaken over 5 weeks to receive feedback on key aspects of animal management to inform the DAMP.

The DAMP summarises the key community feedback received and details actions to be taken over the next four years.

The draft DAMP is now available for community engagement. Is there anything missing? Is there anything you feel should be changed? We invite submissions on the draft DAMP and welcome all views and suggestions to ensure the DAMP is as effective as possible.
