Fenced Dog Parks: Aubin Grove and South Lake

Consultation has concluded

Closing 2 December 2017. Have your say on a proposal to create fenced dog parks at Aubin Grove and South Lake.

Proposed locations

  • Durango Park, Aubin Grove (where the City could fence the boundary of the park)
  • South Lake, unnamed reserve (under the powerlines, south of Briggs Road).

How to have your say

  • Option 1: Complete the survey below
  • Option 2: Email your comments to comment@cockburn.wa.gov.au
  • Option 3: Post your comments to Chief Executive Officer, PO Box 125, Bibra Lake DC WA 6965

Background

A City-wide survey completed in October 2016 found strong support for more off-lead dog exercise areas.

The City has previously considered and sought feedback on a number of locations. Based on that feedback:

  • There will be a fenced dog exercise area at Milgun Reserve this year and in the future, Costa Park.
  • Council has decided not to proceed with dog exercise areas at Princeton Park or Brenchley Park.
  • A decision on Bibra Lake has been deferred, pending an environmental report into the suggested locations.

In considering locations for dog parks, Council’s guidelines are:

  • Land of 1.5ha or more
  • Water source for water fountains
  • Parking or capacity for parking spaces
  • Provision for dog poo bag station and general waste bins
  • Preferably away from sports areas and schools so there is no clash of use.

Current situation

  • Preliminary consultation has supported additional fenced dog exercise parks at Aubin Grove and South Lake locations.
  • The WA Government has awarded $160,000 to the City for fenced dog parks in South Lake and Aubin Grove under the ‘Local Jobs, Local Projects Fund’.
  • Council is now seeking final comments on these two locations.
