Changes to the dog on-leash laws

Thank you to everyone who had their say on our recent on-leash consultation for Coast Park and Linear Park.

While no changes are to be made to the Linear Park dog leash requirement within our City (dogs can be off lead but are required to be under effective control), the reserve path between Grange Road and Marlborough Street, Henley Beach is now an on-lead at all times area (leads can be a maximum of 2m in length). The area is highlighted in red on the map and does not include the foreshore. Dogs are required to be on lead (no longer than 2m in length) on all other footpaths outside the identified Coast Park area (as per the requirements of the Dog and Cat Management Act).
