Council is preparing a four-year Animal Management Plan which will guide its management of domestic dogs and other animals within the municipality.
Council is committed to ensuring that our community's safety and amenity is upheld and protected, and that Litchfield is the best place to live in the Top End.
Stage one of the project is the release of the Animal Management Plan Discussion Paper.
The Animal Management Plan will provide Council with a framework to effectively manage the increasing number of domestic dogs within out community and outlines the programs and services that Council will undertake over the next four years.
We are interested in hearing from you on what you feel the key issues are and what actions you'd like to see taken by Council.

- Go to yoursay.litchfield.nt.gov.au and follow the information for the Discussion Paper
