Members Statement - Bayside Dog Alliance


Thursday 7 March, 2019.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (09:51):

I also recently met with Amanda Levi of the Bayside Dog Alliance.

The Alliance recently celebrated its second anniversary, having been set up as a voice for dog owners and carers in the Bayside region.

The Alliance estimates that there are between 18 000 and 19 000 dogs in the Bayside region, which reinforces why their issues need to be on the agenda of policymakers and representatives.

The Alliance has proposed a number of issues for consideration. These include gate and fencing changes at certain parks, pet registration incentives for young animals and the need for a dog agility park in Bayside.

I congratulate the Alliance on its advocacy and look forward to working with it on these important issues.
