Dog Control Bylaw

This page contains the Dog Control Bylaw 2014, which is Chapter 2 of the Consolidated Bylaw.

This Bylaw includes requirements for the control of dogs in public places. There are maps indicating prohibited areas, leash control areas and dog exercise areas. 

The Bylaw points out the requirement to remove dog faeces, and places limitations on the number of dogs that can be kept.

The Bylaw is due for review within ten years.

Additional Restrictions - Abel Tasman Foreshore Scenic Reserve

Please note that a separate bylaw governs the Abel Tasman Foreshore Scenic Reserve, and dogs are prohibited - with a very few exceptions.

View section 9 of the Bylaw on the DOC website for full details.
