Trial Winter Times for Dog Off Leash Access Areas - 1 May to 30 September 2014

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash has announced that Council will be conducting a trial of extended winter times for dog off leash access areas, from 1 May 2014 to 30 September 2014. 

 

Dog off leash access times during the trial period will be in operation from 3.00pm to 10.00am daily.

 

Three beaches have been identified for the trial: Huskisson Beach, Nelson Beach at Vincentia, and Culburra Beach.  Signs are now in place to reflect the changes at these locations.

 

The Mayor said that Council conducted a Dog Access Areas Policy review in 2013, which included an on-line survey covering a broad range of issues. 

 

“Council received a total of 699 responses, 103 of which requested an increase in off leash times.  Many highlighted that during the winter months, the beaches are used less and it is often dark and cold during off leash times” Clr Gash said.

 

Council will be conducting community consultation regarding the trial, commencing 23 April 2014. A web-based feedback form can be accessed during the trial period from Council’s website www.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au. 

 

Alternatively you can write or email submissions to Council. Submissions must be made in writing and can be emailed to council@shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au or posted to:
