Off Leash Dog Park for Murrumbateman
Friday, 16 March 2018 8:00 pm
Pebbles the zoohause dog and her Yass Valley Dog Walkers poochie pals might be getting ever closer to enjoying a nice and safe run and play in their very own community off-leash dog park in Murrumbateman soon.
Our intrepid investigator (Walter!) has spied something very interesting in the March 2018 Minutes of Yass Valley Council. It included Minutes of the Murrumbateman Recreation Reserve Grounds Committee that was held on 15th of March 2018.
In amongst the various recommendations that were presented to Council for consideration and adoption was the following:
‘Item 6.2 The Committee was in agreeance to place an off leash dog area at the southern entrance to the recreation grounds off Murrumbateman Road and this be included in the draft Strategic Plan.'
The more detailed words in the Committee’s own Minutes reads as follows:
"6.2 Off Leash Dog Area for Murrumbateman
The Committee was asked to consider a suitable location for an off leash dog area in Murrumbateman.
Two possible locations were identified:
1. Area at the southern end of the Recreation grounds off Murrumbateman Road. This provided a suitable flat and sloped area that would not impede on other users and provide parking and easy access to the area. This area is easily accessible to residents and travellers.
2. The Murrumbateman Common was also identifed as a suitable area which provided suitable flat ground but was somewhat in a more remote location for travellers to find.
The Committee was in agreeance to place an off leash dog area at the southern entrance to the recreation grounds off Murrumbateman Road and this be included in the draft Strategic Plan."
We’ll be following this news development like an Australian Rough Coated Terrier up a drainpipe! And letting you know the minute we sniff something out.
