At its Ordinary Meeting on 21 September 2023, Council agreed to commence a local law-making process which proposes changes to animal management at Point Cartwright.
The proposed local law amendments follow the endorsement of the Point Cartwright Reserve and La Balsa Park Master Plan (Master Plan) in August 2023.
The Master Plan proposed changes to animal management requirements at Point Cartwright Reserve. The proposed changes would result in:
- Dogs being prohibited at the northern beach, including: Rocky Headland, Rocky Foreshore; and vegetated areas indicated in red on the Consolidated Animal Management Reference Map (previously off-leash).
- Dogs being on-leash, at all times, and in appropriate areas as indicated on the Consolidated Animal Management Reference Map, including pathways and open space indicated in green (previously mixed on-leash and off-leash).
- No change to La Balsa Park (dog on-leash).
- No change to the Eastern Beach, ‘The Pocket’, beach entries 198-201 (dog off-leash).
Any changes to dog off leash and prohibited animal areas requires an amendment to the Local Laws.
Council appreciates that many of our community members contributed feedback during the master plan process and value you providing further feedback on the proposed local law amendments.
