Domestic animal management plan

The Domestic Animals Act 1994 (the Act) requires that each municipal council prepare an animal management plan. Melton City Council supports that strategic approach and has therefore developed this plan in accordance with the legislative guidelines.

  • The Plan will allow the Council to undertake a consistent approach to animal management issues throughout the municipality
  • Ensures activities undertaken by the Local Laws unit in relation to domestic animal management have a strategic focus.
