Council is reviewing its General Local Law No. 2 – Community Amenity and Municipal Places and designated dog areas to ensure they are relevant to and reflect the expectations of the community.

We are inviting the community to provide feedback on the current local law and designated dog areas to see what is or isn’t working well and what needs more or less control. This feedback will help Council draft a new Local Law and new dog designated areas that will be presented to the community for further comment later in the year.

The current General Local Law No. 2 regulates activities such as burning off, obstructions in public places, keeping animals, unsightly land, busking and the consumption of alcohol. Your feedback on the current Local Law is encouraged to ensure any future local law reflects the expectations of the community.

The current designated dog on leash areas are generally the main township CBD’s, Calembeen Park, Hepburn Mineral Springs and Lake Daylesford. Most areas within the Hepburn Shire are dog off leash areas. Your feedback on the current designated dog areas are encouraged to ensure any future designated areas reflect the expectations of the community.
