An important note about on-leash and off-leash areas

Please note the Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) does not cover on-leash and off-leash areas, as these sit separately under Council’s Dog Regulations.

Any feedback relating to on-leash and off-leash areas will not contribute to the DAMP, however it is valued and has been passed on to the Local Laws team to be considered in the next review of the regulations.
