The draft Companion Animals Management Plan 2011-2014 sets the direction of the management of companion animals over the next 3 years. Have Your Say.
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.
