*Reminder: This mapping tool is used to assess how our existing Dog Off Leash areas and how well some of Councils Dog 'On-leash' areas are functioning within the community. The #dips strategy is not addressing comments around additional dog off leash sites, as previous studies have shown interest from the community around improvements to existing sites is of a higher priority to the community.
