Will safety for dogs off-leash be considered?
Council acknowledges concerns about the safety of dogs in the proposed dog off-leash area, particularly in relation to the amount of treed versus grassed space, and the potential for snakes and other safety related issues. Council will consider all feedback on the draft masterplan and attempt to address concerns raised by dog owners in the detailed design process which will follow the public exhibition period. The detailed design of facilities that are proposed in Stage 1 of the draft masterplan will be placed on public exhibition in the future for further public comment before finalising the masterplan.
Safety for dogs off-leash is included in the proposed Site Parameters - refer to page 8 of the draft masterplan.
