Albany Extra - - News - Shan­non Smith

The City of Al­bany has pro­posed new bound­aries for zones where dogs are al­lowed off leash, on leash and pro­hib­ited.

Pro­posed as of Au­gust, the list of lo­ca­tions in the city bound­aries are zoned as a dog ex­er­cise area, pro­hib­ited ar­eas and ru­ral leash­ing ar­eas.

Two ar­eas have been es­tab­lished as dog ex­er­cise zones, in­clud­ing Bar­nesby Drive Re­serve and Becker Park, specif­i­cally the grassed park­land area ac­cessed from Baker Street North in Lower King. In these two ar­eas the dogs may be off leash but must re­main un­der con­trol at all times.

The Fench­mans Bay Pic­nic area and beach has been gazetted as a ru­ral leash­ing area, mean­ing dogs must be on a leash at all times.

Dogs have been pro­hib­ited in the bush­land ar­eas of Becker Park, Cape Riche Camp Ground, Cen­ten­nial Oval, and Stid­well Bri­dle Trail which are des­ig­nated as horse only.

Emu Point Beach, Mid­dle­ton Beach and Na­narup Beach are also pro­hib­ited ar­eas.

Reg­is­tered com­pan­ion dogs are ex­empt from pro­hib­ited ar­eas. To com­ment on the pro­posal visit al­bany.wa.gov.au.
