Amendment to Local Law No. 1 (Administration) 2019 & Subordinate Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2019

Concerns have been raised from members of the community regarding the number of dogs in urban areas and breeding of animals (particularly in rural residential areas).

It is proposed that Local Law No. 1 (Administration) 2019 and Subordinate Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2019 are amended to define an urban area, increase the minimum lot size for keeping stock (this does not include poultry or pigs), require a permit to keep stock on a lot between 4000m² and 20,000m², and prohibit more than two dogs being kept on lots under 4000m².

Adopted changes would become the Amending Local Law No. 1 (Miscellaneous) 2023.
