Do you have any suggestions to improve self regulation of the trial Wildlife Protection Areas?
A review of the implementation of WPAs in other LGA’s has indicated that self-regulation is the preferred compliance approach due to:
• the high cost associated with proactive enforcement
• the limited ability to apply a penalty to owners of companion animals, in particular cats, in breach of the local order.
Council will adopt a similar model relying primarily on education and voluntary compliance.
This consultation has concluded.
