Council's Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) specifically identifies the potential issues caused by cats allowed to roam within the community by causing a nuisance, damaging native wildlife and adding to the proliferation of unowned/feral cats in the area.  One of the identified activities within the DAMP was to investigate the feasibility of the introduction of a cat confinement/curfew order.  If such an order were to be made it would mean that people would have to ensure that their cats were not allowed to roam off their property.  The curfew could be in-place for the entire time or only during the night time period.

This questionnaire is designed to seek your feedback and views on the potential introduction of a cat curfew.
