Every four years Bass Coast Shire Council update their Domestic Animal Management (DAM) Plan. Council will be hosting community consultation throughout May to establish what is important for local residents regarding responsible ownership of dogs and cats.

The DAM Plan looks at how we live with cats and dogs. It provides a direction for the management of these domestic animals.

Bass Coast Mayor, Councillor Pamela Rothfield, commented on the purpose of the Plan.

"The Plan will outline objectives to address key issues regarding domestic animal management. This may include strategies for evaluating animal control service, promoting and encouraging responsible pet ownership, and minimising the potential for nuisance pets and dog attacks," Cr Rothfield said.

"The Plan’s main objective is to ensure that we all live harmoniously alongside our four legged friends. It’s important that anyone affected by domestic animals, not just pet owners, are involved in reviewing this plan."

The community can voice their opinion on the DAM Plan 2017-21 by attending any of the following sessions:

  • Cowes shopping Centre (Woolworths) on Tuesday, 16 May from 11.00am to 2.00pm
  • Wonthaggi Plaza on Thursday, 18 May from 10.00am to 1.00pm
  • Grantville Market on Sunday, 28 May from 8.00am to 2.00pm
