Thanks for your feedback. This consultation has now closed.

Under the Domestic Animals Act 1994, every Victorian local government must prepare a plan outlining how it will manage dogs and cats within its municipal boundaries.

The Domestic Animal Management Plan aims to promote responsible pet ownership, the welfare of cats and dogs in the community and the protection of the community and environment from nuisance cats and dogs. The Plan also outlines how Council will enforce legislative requirements and compliance with our local laws.

What's happened so far?

In May 2021 we asked for your feedback on a range of domestic animal related issues and topics, along with what is working well and what could be improved. Following this consultation we used your feedback to develop the draft Domestic Animal Management Plan 2022-25 which we asked for your feedback on throughout August 2021.

What's next?

We are currently reviewing your feedback which will help us finalise the draft Plan, prior to it being presented to Council for consideration in November 2021.
