Comment invited on Council’s Dog Control Policy

Comment invited on Council’s Dog Control Policy

Now is the time to have your say on proposed changes to the Christchurch City Council’s Dog Control Policy.

A pamphlet outlining the suggested changes was posted to all registered dog owners last week and is available to the general public through Council service centres and Christchurch City Libraries. It can also be read on the website www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay

Feedback on the changes must be with the Council by 18 July. Comments can be made by returning the pamphlet freepost, writing to the Council’s environmental policy leader or through the Have Your Say website.

The Council decided at its March 2003 meeting that the proposed changes should be distributed for public consultation. The alterations focus on making regulations easier for dog owners to understand; protecting popular beach areas from fouling; increasing children’s safety and; preventing dogs from causing harm to sensitive wildlife areas.
