Dogs of the Western Bay - our Draft Dog Control Policy and Bylaw

Thanks for having your say! Consultation has now finished. We'll be in touch with an adopted plan in August.

Welcome to Dogs of the Western Bay - we're excited to hear your thoughts on our proposed changes to the District's Dog Control Policy and Bylaw.

Earlier this year we asked you what changes you'd like to see to our dog rules. We've listened to your feedback and created a draft policy and bylaw.

Please take a look at the key proposed changes and see what you think. You can also view the draft bylaw, Statement of Proposal, new-look public restriction maps, and you can ask us questions.

If you'd like to have your say please fill in the feedback form.

Please note this is not for Tauranga City areas and issues - only for the Western Bay of Plenty District. Here's a map of my stomping ground if you want to check!
