The Northern Beaches Council is considering allowing dogs to roam off leash on the Pittwater side of Palm Beach, at Station Beach.
Off leash dogs will increase ocean pollution, threaten bird and marine life and increase the risk of unprovoked dog attacks on families and children. It will also increase traffic congestion and parking problems at Palm Beach.
The proposed trial would create a dangerous precedent where all beaches on the peninsula could become open to off leash dogs.
The Council has asked the community to vote on whether they should set up a trial to allow dogs to roam off leash on Station Beach.
Show the Council the community doesn’t support this.
