    Proposed Changes to Dog Off Leash Areas

    Proposed Changes to Dog Off Leash Areas

    A report will go to Council on Monday 10 August about dog off leash areas. Some changes are proposed in Port Melbourne and will be of interest to your members.

    * In Garden City, it is proposed to make it dog off leash in the area between the Beacon Cove/Howe Parade path up to the path that goes east/west past the Trugo Club, and on leash in the area north of that path where the playground is going in and the sporting posts are.

    * At Sandridge, it is proposed - in light of landscape improvements in that area - to retain the dog beach between the first and second groyne, but have dogs on leash north of the bicycle path.

    * It is also proposed that 4 be the maximum number of dogs a person can walk in order to maintain effective control

    * There is also provision for temporary exclusion of dogs where grassed areas require rest or rehabilitation

    see http://www.portphillip.vic.gov.au/august_2009_agendas.htm for the report.

    The proposals will be out for comment from 17 August to 20 September. The proposed changes will be on the website and at all Town Halls.

    I would be grateful for your assistance in making your members aware of the report and proposed changes.
    Regards
    Janet Bolitho
