Council at its meeting of 12 June 2018, resolved to place the Draft Local Orders Policy – Keeping of Animals on public exhibition for a period of 28 days.

The Local Orders Policy – Keeping of Animals sets the standards in relation to the care, control and management of animals within the Local Government Area and seeks to:

  • Balance the rights of property owners and the rights of others to enjoy their own property free from external impacts of nuisance; and
  • Ensure that animals kept on residential land are of an appropriate kind and in appropriate numbers and maintained in satisfactory conditions so as to not result in unhealthy or unsafe conditions and do not cause a nuisance to others.

The draft Local Orders Policy – Keeping of Animals is available for inspection at the following locations:

  • In the attachments on this page
