Approved Inspection Program

Are your dogs registered?

Southern Downs Regional Council will commence a Systematic Approved Inspection Program, starting on 1 November 2023 and running through to the 30 April 2024, to monitor resident's compliance with the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 and Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2011.

The Approved Inspection Program throughout the region will be conducted by Council's Local Law Officers and will involve property inspections to determine the registration status of dogs.

A copy of the program is open to inspection at Council's Customer Service Centres, or can be downloaded from the link below. Alternatively, a copy of the program can be purchased from Council's Customer Service Centres, in accordance with Council's current fees and charges.
