Due to COVID-19, Council is making changes to this service

To keep both our staff and residents safe there will be modifications to the way we work. Council Local Laws officers will try to resolve issues via the phone and online. When in person, we ask our community to respect the physical distancing recommendations.

During these tough times, if animals are found to be on the loose, and unregistered, owners will be issued with a warning instead of a fine. We will then provide you with seven days to register your pet.

If you have any questions, or a compliance matter to discuss, please contact us.
