The City of Mitcham has prepared a draft Dog and Cat Management Plan 2018-23 following consultation with the community and key stakeholders in April/May 2017. The future five year plan is to encourage responsible pet ownership of both dogs and cats throughout the City of Mitcham.

Summary of Key Recommendations contained in the draft plan:

  • Existing requirements, procedures and databases will be reviewed and updated to accommodate the forthcoming statewide changes to the Dog and Cat Management Act and the introduction of DACO (Dogs and Cats online)
  • A comprehensive education program will be developed and implemented that covers the suite of local and statewide requirements applying to dogs and cats
  • Hannaford Park is considered as the priority location for a second dog park
  • List of off-leash parks that could be considered for enhancement over the life of the Plan
  • A cat confinement requirement will be considered during the life of the Plan
  • Additional education initiatives will be undertaken in relation to the presence of dogs in public places (streets, footpaths, parks
  • and reserves)
  • A dog barking forum will be held with residents and identified stakeholders

The City of Mitcham is inviting community feedback on the draft Plan to assist their final decision making in producing a program of actions for the next five years by 5pm Wednesday 20 December. The Draft Dog and Cat Management Plan 2018-23 is available at www.mitchamcouncil.sa.gov.au/dogandcatmanagementplan

If you require further information please contact Stephen Saffin, Manager Environmental Services and Community Safety on 8372 8817. Council would like to know what you think! Your participation will help shape our community and remember it is important that we hear from pet owners and non-pet owners.
