We want your feedback on the draft Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) 2021-2025.
Under the Domestic Animals Act (1994), Council is required to prepare and implement a Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) every four years. Utilising relevant community responses and feedback from the "Ballarat: Our Future" engagement (Feb 2021-April 2021), City of Ballarat has created a draft DAMP, the objective of which is to outline Council's plans for animal management.
The aims of the new plan include:
- Design and construct a new sustainable regional animal shelter and enable interaction programs with the community at the Shelter
- Increase community education and knowledge of the principles of responsible pet ownership, and
- Proactively enforce Animal Welfare and Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, and compliance under the Domestic Animals Act (1994)
A copy of the plan can be found here, or by clicking the link to the right of this page.
Submissions close 17 September, 2021.
