Animal Management Plan

Council’s Animal Management Plan aims to work with communities and outstations to achieve responsible pet ownership, better animal welfare outcomes and safer, healthier communities.

Through education, communication and support, we can achieve this goal for the benefit of all residents, businesses and visitors within our communities and for the improvement of our environment.

The plan is designed to guide our approach to animal management issues for the next three years. Although there are legislative requirements regarding animal welfare, this plan is based on a cooperative, non-regulatory approach to animal management, with legislation as a back-up measure.
