About the Project

We are reviewing Council’s policies and programs for pets in Bayside. Council is seeking community views so that those policies address emerging and current issues and tensions.

Animal Management Officers deal with approximately 2,000 complaints annually. Complaints vary from cases of irresponsible ownership, dog attacks and Council’s process of capturing stray or lost animals.

More Information

Council is legislated under the Domestic Animal Management Act (1994) to review services, programs, procedures and policies that address animal management locally.

The Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) describes the services, programs and strategies Council will implement to encourage responsible and compliant domestic animal ownership. A DAMP is developed every four years, this one due in November 2017.
