Have your say on new rules for dogs

 

 

Kaipara District Council is proposing new rules for dogs in the district and is seeking input from the community to make sure they have it right. 

The rules are set through the Kaipara District Policy on Dogs and Dog Management Bylaw.

The Policy on Dogs sets out the approach Council takes to managing dogs in the district and includes setting areas where dogs must be kept on a leash and where dogs are not allowed. 

The Dog Management Bylaw is the legal instrument that gives effect to the approach set out in the Policy – bylaws are legally enforceable, policies are not.

In addition, the bylaw includes rules such as picking up dog droppings in public places, wandering dogs, and the number of dogs that may be kept in urban areas.

Council has now prepared a Draft Policy on Dogs and Dog Management Bylaw, available on Council’s website together with a consultation document and further information. 

Council would like to hear your feedback on the approach being proposed, particularly regarding where the rules apply.

Submissions can be made through the online portal, emailed to bylaws@kaipara.govt.nz, delivered to any Council office or posted to Kaipara District Council, Private Bag 1001, Dargaville 0340.

When making a submission state if you would like to speak to your submission at a hearing.

Cut-off for submissions is 4.30pm, April 10.
