At the Ordinary Council Meeting held on Wednesday 25 October 2023 council endorsed to place the Keeping of Animals Policy on public exhibition for 28 days.

The current Keeping of Animals policy (Urban Areas) was adopted by Council on 28 April 2021 and has existed in various forms since 2013. Council’s Regulatory Services team proposes minor changes to the existing Policy to include “Tom” turkeys into the Prohibited area based on complaints received regarding the noise created by these animals.

Submissions are invited and must be addressed to the General Manager, Armidale Regional Council, PO Box 75A, Armidale, NSW 2350, or sent by email to council@armidale.nsw.gov.au

Submissions must be received by 5pm Monday 4 December 2023.

Please be aware that if you make a submission, other people may have access to your comments. This may be as a result of a report to a Council meeting or as part of an application under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009. Also, under State legislation, any person making a submission on a Draft LEP amendment must also disclose whether they or an ‘associate’ have made a ‘reportable political donation’ or gift to a local Councillor or Council employee within the period commencing two years before any submission is made and ending when the Draft LEP is determined. Further details including disclosure forms are available on request from Council.
