Fraser Coast Animal Management Strategy

Project Overview

Council is developing a Domestic Animal Management Strategy to provide a framework for the delivery of animal management services and initiatives over the next 10 years, and to help achieve the purposes of the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 and FCRC Local Laws. The Strategy is a living document and will be reviewed annually.

Making the Fraser Coast region safer for our animals

Fraser Coast Regional Council is required to develop an animal management strategy to meet the requirements of the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 and FCRC Local Laws.

This is the first time Council has developed a comprehensive domestic animal management strategy, and it is expected to generate considerable interest from residents.

Community Engagement

Our objective is to provide residents with opportunity to be involved in the process of setting a strategy that will align with community and Council needs in the coming 10 years. After consulting with the Fraser Coast Region community, we have developed a draft strategy based on your feedback, within the constraints of the Animal Management (Cats & Dogs) Act 2008 and Council’s Local Laws.

Thank you for participating in our two rounds of community consultation.

You will find answers to frequently asked questions also in the Document Library.
