Dog access rules for beaches and parks are under review. Local boards are looking at the rules after policies from the seven former councils were replaced with a single bylaw. The Albert-Eden Local Board is focusing on beaches and parks between Pt Chevalier and Waterview. The board wants to collect residents’ initial views before deciding whether to propose any changes to current rules in the area. ‘‘We want to hear from both dog owners and non-dog owners to achieve the appropriate balance of access for dogs on our local beaches and parks,’’ board chairman Peter Haynes says.
