Methven community may soon have a designated dog exercise area to let their dog
run off lead and socialise with other pets, following a decision by the
Ashburton District Council to begin work introducing a dog park in the village.
Council voted at the Environmental Services Committee meeting yesterday to
prepare a draft Notice of Requirement (NOR) for a dog park to be developed on a
section of land between Dolma Street and Line Road. The draft NOR would be
presented to the full Council, and if approved, the Council would notify the
community and begin accepting submissions on the proposal.
Services Chairman Councillor Peter Reveley says, “It’s important that owners
have somewhere suitable to take their dog to exercise, and through past
discussions with the Methven Community Board, we know that there is certainly a
demand for a dog park in Methven.
the draft NOR is adopted by Council, we’ll be making sure that residents have a
chance to tell us what they think.”
dog owners in the district can take their pets to a number of dog exercise
areas in Ashburton, such as the dog exercise park alongside the Ashburton River
at the end of William Street, Pioneer Park, Digby Park and the exercise area
next to the Ashburton Resource Recovery Park on Range Street.
