Animal Management Plan

Consultation has concluded

Stage 2 consultation is about to commence in late July. We want you to continue to be involved and Have Your Say so watch this space for an update on when stage 2 consultation will start

We know that managing dogs and cats in the Adelaide Hills is an important matter for our residents. As we draft a new five year Animal Management Plan, we are asking for your comments and considerations about responsible dog, cat and other animal management. We've listened to your feedback and incorporated it in the draft Animal Management Plan so you will be able to view this plan and have your say when the stage 2 consultation opens.

So why should you get involved? Community engagement provides opportunities for a diversity of voices to be heard on issues that matter to people; helps to generate support, agreement and momentum for public actions; builds stronger communities; and can be a key method to address practical concerns about improving the production and delivery of public goods and services.

We are required to develop and maintain a management plan relating to dogs and cats pursant with section 26A of the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995. These plans are referred to as Animal Management Plans and are reviewed every five years. Click here for information about changes to the Act, passed in Parliament (July 2016).

The current Adelaide Hills Council Animal Management Plan expires in 2017.

Consultation will be undertaken over two phases in February (Phase 1) and July (Phase 2) 2017.

Feedback can be provided by:

  • completing the survey when available
  • attending a drop in session
  • a written submission to Adelaide Hills Council, PO Box 44, Woodside SA 5244
