Have your say: people and pets in public spaces

The City of Stonnington is committed to providing quality public space that everyone can safely enjoy.

We have great parks, reserves and public spaces shared that are shared by people and pets. Earlier this year, we introduced changes restricting the number of dogs that any one person can walk to four dogs at a time in Stonnington public spaces.

These changes have generated community interest so we’re conducting additional consultation to gain a clear picture of our community’s views. 

We want to hear from anyone who uses our parks (both on and off-leash), reserves and public spaces about what you think about this change and how our people and our pets can best share these spaces.

You are invited to share your insights in a short online survey. The survey closes Wednesday 13 November

To make sure we gather the views of all the people visiting our public spaces, you might also see our team out and about in our parks and reserves conducting ‘pop-up’ surveys.

The findings from this consultation, as well as the feedback we’ve received since the changes were first introduced will be reported back to Council later this year.

We’d love to hear from you, sovisit connectstonnington.vic.gov.au/dogs-in-public-spaces to have your say.
