New dog parks outcome from October Ordinary Council Meeting

Council has approved for advertising, the establishment of fenced dog parks at Briggs Street in South Lake, and Durango Reserve in Aubin Grove.

Under the Dog Act 1995, Council’s intention to develop the dog parks will now be advertised for 28 days.

A third dog park planned for Walliabup Way, Bibra Lake will be considered by Council in the future, subject to its consideration of an environmental impact report.

This report will investigate the environmental impact that may arise from extra parking, fences and the blocking of a wildlife corridor into the lake.

The City has received grants totalling $160,000 from the State government to help develop the  South Lake and Aubin Grove dog parks, and if public advertisement of the parks gains community support, it will contribute $43,000 to complete the projects.

The City will not establish a dog exercise area at Brenchley Park, opposite Atwell oval, due to its limited size and layout constraints.
