We asked for ideas to inform the development of the Domestic Animal Management Plan 2022-25. The plan outlines how we support the care of the municipality's cats and dogs, and we wanted to hear your thoughts on what the key issues and objectives are, and what actions you wanted 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.

The plan was endorsed in October 2022.
