THE off leash area for dogs at East Corrimal beach should be moved north to the other side of the Bellambi Lagoon, says Wollongong City Councillor Janice Kershaw.
Cr Kershaw has met with residents who say the off leash area at East Corrimal is causing problems with young children and families.
Cr Kershaw wants the southern boundary of the off leash area, between Bellambi Boat Ramp and East Corrimal, reduced and the southern boundary moved to the northern side of the Bellambi Lagoon.
Cr Kershaw, State MP for Keira Ryan Park, council regulation manager Jeannie Nicol met with 50 residents to discuss their concerns. Following discussion, residents have asked for the southern boundary to be moved northward.
A notice of motion has been lodged by Cr Kershaw for the next ordinary meeting of council to begin the process of changing the boundary.
The main southern access point to the off leash area should also be at Bott Drive, Bellambi, says Cr Kershaw.
The notice of motion will be put to the next meeting of council on April 23.
