There was one question:
Dog facilities at the Men’s Pond
A member of the public raised a question in advance of the meeting regarding the status of the dog facilities at the Men’s Pond and whether it was possible for the dog pound to be moved to be in view of the lifeguards and the swimming area. If changes to the new layout were not possible, it was queried if the dog ban could be suspended with the public paying a small fee for use of a dog creche.
Members were advised that the ban on dogs had occurred as people were bringing their dogs into the changing areas causing lifeguards to leave their post to intervene. The Superintendent confirmed that based on initial drawings in development, it would be possible to locate a suitable allocated dog tethering area which is safe but not in the changing area.
