Pitt Park Retained as Dog Off-leash Area
Blue Mountains City Council resolved at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 12 December to retain the park as a dog off-leash area, following the recently adopted Dogs in Public Spaces Strategy 2017.
Ward 2 Councillor Romola Hollywood said: "When I moved to defer the matter from the Dogs in Public Places Strategy in October, I knew it was vital for the community to have their say.
“Following the consultations and despite the offer of a fenced area at Murray Park, it was clear that the use of Pitt Park as a dog off-leash area, when not booked for sporting activities, was preferred option of the majority of the community.
“I hope that a meeting of stakeholders regularly using Pitt Park, coupled with improved signage, will enable us to share this recreational and sporting facility effectively."
The meeting of stakeholders will be co-chaired by Deputy Mayor Cr Chris Van der Kley and Cr Hollywood in January or February, 2018. It will identify strategies to support the effective day-to-day use of the park.
Council will also install large fixed signage to explain the shared-use arrangements for Lower Pitt Park and the expectations of dog owners using the area.
