Changes to off leash dog area at East Corrimal beach

WOLLONGONG City Council will hold an on-site kiosk to consult on proposed changes to the off-leash dog area on East Corrimal beach.

Council is proposing two changes: The first is to move the southern boundary of the ‘off-leash’ area north of the Bellambi lagoon outlet. The second proposed change suggests designating the area from East Corrimal car park to the new boundary, as a ‘public open space’ allowing dogs ‘on-leash’ at any time. This means that dog owners will have to keep their dog on-lead from the car park until they are north of the Bellambi lagoon outlet. The changes will apply only to the main access point of the beach, the status of the beach will remain an off-leash area (green zone).

Council’s Community Engagement will hold the on-site kiosk at East Corrimal Beach on Saturday July 28 from 10am to 12 noon.

The kiosk will include feedback forms, information, and maps of the proposed changes. This information will also be available at Council’s Thirroul, Corrimal and Wollongong libraries.

Completed feedback forms can be emailed to, or dropped into Council’s Customer Service Centre at 41 Burelli Street, Wollongong.

For more information call Council’s Customer Service Centre on (02) 4227 7111.
