    A plan for managing pets in Yarra

    Calling on all pet owners (and non-pet owners) in Yarra! We’d love for you to have a say on our draft Domestic Animal Management Plan 2021-24, which helps us manage dogs and cats in our city. Your input will guide our approach to registration and desexing, how we handle stray or nuisance animals, overpopulation and education programs for locals. What does the plan do? We’re required by law to develop a Domestic Animal Management Plan every four years. It provides us with an important tool to promote responsible pet ownership in Yarra, and lets pet owners and residents know about their rights and responsibilities when it comes to our four-legged friends. Have your say You can share your thoughts on the draft document by: completing the feedback form below emailing info@yarracity.vic.gov.au with the subject ‘Feedback on draft Domestic Animal Management Plan’ calling us on 9205 5555. Consultation ends at 5pm on Thursday 15 July 2021. Drop in for a chat We’ll also be at the Gleadell Street Market on Saturday 10 July 2021 from 10am to 1pm, if you’d like to have chat with us about the draft plan. Have a question not answered here?

What has informed the draft Council Plan 2021–25? When we developed our Yarra 2036 Community Vision, we asked for feedback that could also inform our Council Plan 2021–25 and long-term financial and asset plans. We've aligned the plan to your feedback and the Community Vision's themes and priorities. Long Term Financial Plan The Local Government Act 2020 also introduced a new requirement for all councils to prepare and adopt a Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) for period of at least the next 10 financial years by 31 October 2021. Our draft LTFP provides financial strategy principles, strategic actions, assumptions to the financial plan statements, financial performance indicators and strategies for borrowings and reserves.
