Council asking residents to have their say on dog off leash trial areas

Shoalhaven City Council is reminding residents that the extended dog off leash winter time trial will continue until 30 September.

 

During the trial period dog off leash access times are in operation from 3pm – 10am daily on selected beaches.

 

The three beaches selected as part of the trial are –

  • Culburra Beach

  • Nelsons Beach, Vincentia

  • Huskisson Beach

 

As part of the extended winter trial, Council is calling on the community to have their say about off leash areas through an online survey form located on Council’s website.

 

Mayor, Joanna Gash said that while Council had already received a lot of submissions it was important that all local residents took the opportunity to make comment throughout the trial period.

 

“From all reports, the extended dog off leash times have been well utilised by local residents during the first half of the trial period,” said Clr Gash.

 

“It is extremely important that all local residents take the opportunity to have their say on the perceived benefits and drawbacks of the trial period through Council’s online survey form.

 

“Council is seeking feedback from all beach users; this is an issue that will affect all local residents not just those that own a dog.”

 

Mayor, Gash said that Council chose to conduct a trial extension of off leash hours at three local beaches during winter given the area’s beaches are less utilised during this period.

 

Local residents are invited to complete the survey on Council’s website while submissions can also be emailed to council@shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au or posted to -
