HAVE YOUR SAY on Off Leash Dog Areas in Cardinia……… Again!
Cardinia Shire residents are invited to have their say on off-lead areas for dogs as part of a regular review of designated areas and the criteria used to establish other areas in the future.
The online survey is now open and includes questions on how often and when residents walk their dogs off-lead. There is also a section about the criteria for establishing an off-lead dog area that considers proximity to wildlife, traffic, other residents and the impact on children’s play areas, sport and recreation and existing picnic areas.
Feedback is welcome from dog owners and non-dog owners.
The survey is available online via www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/offlead
A drop-in session will also be held at Council’s Civic Centre, 20 Siding Avenue, Officer on Tuesday 3 October from 10am to 2pm where residents can come in and speak to council officers about dog off-lead areas.
For more information about off-lead areas in Cardinia Shire visit www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/pets
