Draft Domestic Animal Plan out now

Following input late last year, we've developed a draft Domestic Animal Management Plan. The four-year plan focuses on improving Council's pound, investigating mandatory de-sexing of cats and a dusk to dawn cat curfew and investigation a possible on-leash dog policy, including the possibility of fenced off-leash areas. We're seeking your input now.
