Companion Animals Management Plan 2011-2014

Public comment is invited on the draft Companion Animals Management Plan 2011-2014.

The Companion Animals Act 1998 makes local government responsible for many issues regarding companion dogs and cats. There is a need for the Council to determine an appropriate balance between regulatory and non-regulatory techniques to influence companion animal related activities. The draft Plan outlines the Council's strategic approach to these issues over the next 3 years.

    The draft plan provides Council with the opportunity to find the balance between encouragement and support for the social benefits of pet ownership, whilst at the same time indicating a strong commitment to protecting public amenity, safety and the environment.  It guides our actions over the period July 2011 to June 2014.  These actions are grouped under:

    • Microchipping and Registration
    • Animal wellbeing
    • Community living
    • Protection of the natural environment
    • Public amenity and open spaces
    • Pound activities
    • Educational initiatives
    • Compliance issues

     

    The document is supported by the Local Orders Policy - Part 1 Animal Management adopted by the Council on 16 March 2010.
