Pet policy

Next steps


The next steps once the policy has been approved is to inform tenants and leaseholders as to the amended requirements included within the new Pet Policy to keep a pet in a Council owned property or block. To prepare a procedure to deal with requests from tenants to keep a pet, to ensure all requests are dealt with consistently; and to encourage existing pet owners where they do not have permission to keep a pet to seek permission. 

The Council will also commence an annual check of all tenants who have permission to keep a dog to ensure those arrangements are working effective
