Animal management plan out for
public comment in Whyalla

A new, up-dated five-year draft animal management plan has been released for public consultation by Whyalla City Council.

If there are no substantive representations requiring modification and further referral to Council, the draft plan will be adopted and submitted to the SA Dog and Cat Management Board.

The plan was first adopted in 2009 and has been reviewed by Council’s Team Leader Management Services, Matt Werner, and Group Manager Planning and Development, Stewart Payne.

Mr Werner said it demonstrated Council’s commitment to responsible animal management within the community and had been written in accordance with the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995.

Relevant engagement with stakeholders has occurred in preparing the draft, but consultation is now required with the broader community in accordance with Council’s public consultation policy.

Endorsement of the plan will enable Council to improve its service to the community by increasing the likelihood of animals being reunited with their owners, while reducing the number of dogs surrendered or constantly brought in to animal shelters and euthanised.

The draft plan will be available for inspected on Council’s website, www.whyalla.sa.gov.au, during the consultation period.
