​Consultation is now closed

This consultation ran from Wednesday 23 June to Wednesday 4 August 2021


Coordinator Parks and Urban Spaces

Ph: (02) 9911 3544



Last year Council resolved to develop a Dog Friendly Lane Cove Strategy as a proactive way to approach the future provision of our dog friendly spaces.

As part of developing the Strategy, earlier this year Council asked the community for feedback on a range of priorities and concerns. This was then reviewed along with information from drop-in sessions held at local dog off-leash areas as well as meetings with key stakeholders. Background data from existing Council plans and strategies was also reviewed in conjunction with NSW state legislation such as the Companion Animals Act, 1998 and best practice from other dog strategies in local Council areas.

A Draft Dog Strategy  has now been developed to guide Council's future priorities and all members of the community are encouraged to have their say.
