How to have your say on proposed Cherbourg law changes

CHERBOURG residents will be able to have their say on proposed changes to laws in town.

Under a new proposed law, a maximum of two dogs would be allowed at a property, and some dog breeds, including mastiffs, would not be allowed.

The proposed law states dogs must be kept in a secure enclosure, walked on a leash and desexed at six months of age.

No outdoor fires will be permitted under a new proposed law, unless on a camp site, and fines up to $6527 will be issued.

No barbed wire fences would be allowed at houses under a new proposed law. Properties may be inspected for fencing, and large fines of up to $6527 would be issued.

Volunteers from the Queensland University of Technology will consult and gather community feedback to present to the Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council about the proposed changes.

The students will be at the Cherbourg Ration Shed Reconciliation Fun Run on Saturday.

You can also have your say by filling out a feedback form available at the Cherbourg council office, or email haveyoursay.cherbourg@gmail.com.
