We're asking for ideas to inform the development of the Domestic Animal Management Plan 2022-25. The plan will outline how we support the care of the municipality's cats and dogs, and we're keen to hear your thoughts on what the key issues and objectives are, and what actions you’d like us to take.

The first round of consultation on the plan ran from 13 May until 5 June 2022. The second round of consultation ran from 17 August to 12 September 2022.
