Robert Loftus - 22 November 2016

Robert Loftus made comments regarding the establishment of a dog park in Batemans Bay at the Ordinary Council Meeting 22 November 2016.

Council's Reply

As you may be aware, Council endorsed the following motion at its meeting on 13 December 2016:  

‘THAT:

1. Council address existing and emerging demand for dog recreational venues in the Shire, with a staged approach that considers demand (current and potential), community engagement to date and cost within a responsible recreation planning context.

2. Council, by 31 March 2017, seek further information from the Batemans Bay Dog Park Supporters Group and other interested parties regarding the provision of dog recreational and training facilities in the Batemans Bay area and that Council support in principle the establishment of such amenities.

3. Council plan for the provision of a fenced dog training and recreation facility at the Moruya Showgrounds as part of the forward budget and master planning processes.’

Based on this result, a Council staff member will contact you in the New Year, to form a working party to develop a staged planning approach to resolve this matter.
