Winter is nearly over and dog access to Oriental bay finished this month (October)
This petition is to allow dogs on the small beach East of the Rotunda.
The main beach at Oriental Bay has been open to dogs over the winter with no ill effects. The dog owners who frequent this beach are responsible for keeping it clean from dog poop. In addition to this many of them collect plastic waste on the beach, saving the council doing it (or not)
The small beach East of the rotunda is contained and in the summer there are not many who use it, preferring the main beach.
Most of the dog parks in Wellington turn into bogs when it rains and are muddy and wet. (Cog dog park should have been called Bog dog park)
The increase in apartments in Wellington has increased the dog population with absolutely no changes to the amenities for several years.
Allow off leash dogs throughout the year on the small contained beach North East of the Rotunda on Oriental Bay
