    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 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.
