Public order review

Did you know that in 1998, Council adopted rules (a Public Order) for dogs and cats in public places?

The current rules state that dogs should be kept on a lead when they are on a Council road or footpath, and when they are within 5 metres of a shared pathway, children’s playground or barbeque area.

And you’ve probably seen signs at parks and reserves around Banyule that tell you whether you can take your dog or cat in with you. This is because the Public Order states that dogs and cats are not allowed to enter environmentally sensitive places.
