Proposed Changes of Dog Off-Leash Hours in Parks

This consultation has concluded.

Thank you to our community members who have participated. Your comments and feedback will be collated and presented to Council with recommendations via a Council Decision Report in late 2016.

Purpose of this consultation

The City of Unley is currently seeking feedback from the community regarding dog off-leash times in selected parks and reserves. There are currently twelve parks where dogs can be exercised off-leash between 5pm and 10am.

Background

It has been identified by some residents that between April to September, it is darker earlier and therefore it has been suggested that the off-leash times in these parks be extended to start earlier for these months.

This was presented to Council by residents who exercise their dogs in Page Park with a petition on 26 April 2016.

The purpose of this community engagement is to seek community feedback regarding extending the off leash times in these parks so that dogs can be exercised off-leash in the parks in daylight hours.
