Have your say on Koala Area mapping in the Redlands

17 February – 15 March 2016

Council is proposing an amendment to Subordinate Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2015, which would expand the Redlands’ Koala Area mapping to include the areas of:

  • Ferntree Park in Capalaba
  • St James’s Park in Birkdale
  • Part of Thornlands
  • Part of Thorneside
  • North Stradbroke Island townships of Dunwich, Point Lookout and Amity Point

This follows a Council review of Koala Area mapping in response to submissions received during the public consultation period for Council’s new local laws, adopted in April 2015.


What would be the impact?

Should the amendment be adopted, residents in the new Koala Areas who live on properties of over 2000 square metres will need to den or restrain their dogs at night or keep them in a proper enclosure at all times.

We will write to these property owners and tenants to ensure they are aware of any impacts upon them and encourage them to have their say during the consultation period.

These requirements are outlined in Schedule 4A of the current Subordinate Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2015.

The requirements for keeping dogs in Koala Areas will not change – the proposed amendment relates to the addition of Koala Areas only.
