Dogs free to roam on local beaches

 

A number of northern suburbs beaches will remain playgrounds for dogs after Wollongong Council voted to leave current off-leash beach zonings unchanged.

 

It comes after months of protests and social media campaigns opposing changes to the policy.

 

Members of lobby group Unleash Our Beaches say they feel "vindicated" following the 11-2 vote overnight.

 

The ruling means pooches can continue to roam free on Little Austinmer, Stanwell Park, McCauleys and Sharkeys beaches.
