Public Forum To Discuss Dogs On Beaches

Bass Coast Shire Council is inviting all interested community members to a public forum to kick start a month-long consultation process regarding dogs on Inverloch beaches.

“This forum is an opportunity for all community members to provide their views to Council about dogs on Inverloch beaches,” Mayor, Cr Neil Rankine said.

“Starting at this forum and throughout the month of October, Council will be seeking community input on where people would like to see dogs on and off-leash and the dates, times and locations for how and when the beach is shared.

“Council needs to determine how we allow for the fair and equitable use of our beaches, while taking into account amenity, environmental issues and safety concerns.

“These are some of the issues we’ll be discussing at the forum.”

The public forum will be held in the hall at the Inverloch Community Hub on the corner of A’Beckett Street and Reilly Street, on Monday, 22 September from 6.00pm until 8.30 pm.

A free barbecue will be provided from 5.30pm onwards, with the forum beginning at 6.00pm.
