Council Resolution - Tuesday 22 February 2022

Published on 19 April 2022

At its meeting held on Tuesday 22 February 2022, Council resolved the following:

(a) That Council retains the existing area identified for dog off-leash use in Meadowbank Park.

(b) That dog off leash use be permitted in this area when the sports-field is not booked for organised sporting activities, thus expanding utilisation time.

(c) That in response to the majority of submission respondents that supported the exhibited plan, and those who opposed the plan citing the need for more off-leash space, Council adopts the proposed fenced area on the Eastern side of the canal.

(d) That Council allocate appropriate funds as required for implementation from General Revenue.

(e) That staff thank respondents for their submission, including the head petitioner, and advise them of the outcome of the consultation

The existing dog off-leash area is now available when not used for organised sport. 

The new fenced dog off-leash area on the eastern side of the canal will be scheduled for design and installation once funding is allocated. Council will provide a further update when works are due to occur.
