At the Services Special Committee meeting held on Monday 10 August 2020, Council resolved to proceed with the development of a reduced scope fenced dog play area in a portion of Gordon Barnard Reserve in North Balwyn (between the pool and eastern oval).

In accordance with the resolution, we are now seeking your feedback to amend Council’s Order (made under Section 26 of the Domestic Animals Act 1994) to establish the area set aside within Gordon Barnard Reserve (between the existing pool and eastern oval) as a designated, fenced dog off-leash area.

To read about the project and the initial community consultation, see Gordon Barnard Reserve fenced dog play area.

If Council decides to amend the Order, community consultation on a concept design for the fenced dog play area will follow.
