Have you had your say on dog walking in Bunbury?

By Kevin Kelly

If like many people living in real estate in Bunbury East you're a dog owner, there's still time to offer your opinion on what improvements can be made on walking areas in your local neighbourhood.

The City of Bunbury is welcoming input on its dog walking and prohibited zones throughout the region, as it looks to find out where more of these places are needed.

A map is available for public comment and responses are being welcomed right up until 31 October.

"It is important that the community provides feedback so that we're able provide areas that are best suited for people to be able to exercise their pet in a safe environment without impacting on other users," said community law and safety manager John Kowal.

A version of the map is available online, or you can head down to the Customer Service building on Stephen Street if you would rather receive a hard copy.

It shows the areas that are currently being considered for dog exercise, as well as parts of the city that could soon become prohibited.

The public was asked back in July whether more, less or the same amount of dog exercise areas were needed in Bunbury and the map has been drawn up as a result.
