    From Strata News #269
    George’s River Council is Updating their Keeping of Animals Policy.

    If you live in the George’s River Council, were you aware the council is currently updating their Keeping of Animals Policy? See Section 9.

    The Keeping of Dogs: “Units and Townhouses Allotments and allotments less than 400m2 a maximum of one dog with a maximum weight of 11kg“.

    View the Draft Policy and have your say by 2 Aug here.

    Out of curiosity I had a quick look at the downloaded document. On p.7 of the summary/discussion paper it says: “Units and Townhouses Allotments (not in a strata scheme) and allotments less than 400m2 a maximum of one dog with a maximum weight of 11kg.” which suggest no effect on strata schemes. However, the exclusion of strata schemes seems to be omitted from a corresponding line of the policy document that is an attachment to the the summary/discussion. I would seek clarification on that point as well.

    Similar rules adopted by owners corporations have been tossed out by the ACT Tribunal. The weight of a dog is a poor indication of its suitability for apartment living. Some large dog varieties tend to be happy, healthy and quiet lazing about an apartment all day while some small dog varieties tend to go stir-crazy and disturb everyone.

    I suggest responding to the council with that comment, if nothing else.
