Cory Street Park - proposed dog off-leash area

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We're proposing to create an unfenced, designated dog-off leash area in Cory Street Park in Oakey. The proposed area would give dog owners a place to train, socialise and exercise their pets off-leash.

In accordance with Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2011 which authorises amendments to designated dog off-leash areas, we're now seeking community feedback on the proposal. Please read on to find out how you can have your say.


Dog handler responsibilities

Within any public area dog handlers must:

  • keep their dog(s) under effective control at all times, either by:
    • restraint on a leash OR
    • unrestrained within a designated dog off-leash area but under the continuous supervision of a person who is able to control the animal by voice command
  • immediately remove and dispose of their dog’s faeces in a sanitary manner
  • prevent their dog(s) from attacking a person or animal, or acting in a way that causes fear to a person or animal, or cause damage to property
  • ensure their dog(s) are currently registered within the local government area where they are usually kept
  • ensure that declared dangerous, menacing dogs, and prohibited breeds meet with conditions outlined in the declaration for that animal
  • ensure that female dogs that are in season (on heat) are not brought into a public area.

Local laws and penalties apply.

You can comment on the proposal by making a formal submission in writing from Saturday 21 November to 5pm on Sunday 13 December 2020.
