Local Law Amendment - Four dogs on Large Lots

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council is considering amending its animal management local laws to allow keeping up to four dogs on properties greater than 10,000sqm that have more than one lawful, occupied, self-contained dwelling.

In these circumstances, the proposed change would allow those properties greater than 10,000sqm to have up to four dogs in total without the need for Council approval.

Regardless of the number of lawful, occupied, self-contained dwellings on the property, the proposed amendment would only allow four dogs in total for a property greater than 10,000sqm (not four dogs per occupied dwelling on the property).

A self-contained dwelling means a dwelling house, dual occupancy, or secondary dwelling only,

(a) used, or capable of being used, as a self-contained residence; and

(b) contains –

(i) food preparation facilities; and

(ii) a bath or shower; and

(iii) a toilet and

(iv) a wash basin; and

(v) facilities for washing clothes.
