Frankston City Council is seeking community feedback as it looks to improve services, programs and policies relating to domestic animals.
Council will shortly begin reviewing its Domestic Animal Management Plan 2017–2021 (DAMP) with a view to developing a new plan for the next four years.
Frankston City Council Mayor, Sandra Mayer, said this was a terrific opportunity for residents to contribute their thoughts about a range of matters including:
- Cat curfews
- Fenced free roam areas
- Free roam areas on the foreshore
- Dogs being walked on sports ovals
- Cats roaming outside of their premises
- Owners feeling safe when walking their dogs
- Things that concern you regarding cats and dogs
“Pets are integral to the happiness of so many in our community and we want to make sure we take everyone’s views into consideration as we develop the 2020-2024 DAMP.
“This document will help guide officers as they manage domestic animal issues in the community in accordance with the Domestic Animals Act.”
The Domestic Animals Act 1994 requires Victorian Councils to develop a DAMP every four years.
