Should Dogs be Allowed on the Main Street in Taumarunui?
Currently, dogs are banned in the Taumarunui CBD. Council is now reviewing this and wanting the community's feedback.
Why does Taumarunui CBD have a dog ban?
Council allowed individual townships to make their own decisions about where dogs are permitted across their town, and Taumarunui is currently the only centre in the District that bans dogs.
Why the review?
Current Dog Prohibited and Leashed Areas
Currently there is a ban in place on Hakiaha and Miriama Streets, parts of Marae, Hikaia and Manuaute Streets and Kydd and Hayes Lanes. The proposed changes would have these areas changed to leashed areas.
Proposed Dog Prohibited and Leashed Areas
The current bans in place at Taumarunui Domain, Ngā Huinga/Cherry Grove, and other reserves will continue to be enforced.
How can I have my say?
There is a feedback form at the bottom of the page if you would like to make a submission on the proposal.
Alternatively there is a feedback form included in the Statement of Proposal attached. This can be handed in to any Council office, sent via post or emailed to email@example.com.
A public meeting will be held on Monday 16 March at the Miriama Community Centre in Taumarunui, which will give the community the opportunity to ask questions and share their feedback.
