Dog off leash review

Residents who enjoy Garden City Reserve with their dogs were amongst 20 submitters to council on Monday on the dog off leash review.

The main issues raised by submitters were
  • about the proposal for dogs being leashed 5 m on either side of shared paths

  • the number of dogs capable of being under the effective control of one person

  • the process that will be used to determine whether an area should be made temporarily unavailable for dogs, and whether alternative areas would be made available

  • whether more hours could be made available in the morning for dogs to be off leash

These issues will alll be investigated further before Council makes final recommendations arising from the consultation process at the meeting on 23 November.
