Have your say

Proposed dog off-leash area at Amity Point

In December 2011, the Minjerribah Recreation Area (which includes Flinders Beach) was declared. As a result, Council had to close the Flinders Beach dog off-leash area at Amity Point.

Council has since worked with key stakeholders to identify two other possible locations for a dog off-leash area and is now seeking further community input.

From Monday 3 March until Friday 28 March, have your say on:

  • your preferred location for a new dog off-leash area at Amity (choosing from two options), and
  • whether the area should be fenced.

View the locations and find out how to have your say on our website. Posters and information is also on display around Amity Point.
