Parks and Recreation brochures

Pauline made this Official Information request to Dunedin City Council

The request was partially successful.

From: Pauline

Dear Dunedin City Council
My preference is to receive the requested information through
Appendix 2 of the report by the Chairperson of the Dog Control Working Party provided by email 4 December 2018 states:
"The Parks & Recreation team have included information in their pamphlets about accessibility to dogs. Examples provided below: ..."
One example deals with Bethunes Gully and shows a symbol representing a dog on leash. The on leash requirement is reinforced by the additional words “on leash in the picnic area”. Bethunes Gully is an area for which dog access was changed on 27 June 2016 without compliance with the required consultation procedure. However, even those unlawful changes permitted dogs off-leash on the track, including off-leash on a track that runs through the area that was referred to as the “picnic area”.
Amending the pamphlets to state that dogs must be on leash means the pamphlets have been amended so they do not provide the correct information. Could you please advise:
(a) Why the pamphlets have been amended to provide incorrect information.
(b) How many amended pamphlets have been produced, and how many distributed to date.
(c) The costs of producing the amended pamphlets.
(d) Whether the associated costs have been funded from money received under the Dog Control Act 1996, and if so, what proportion of the costs were funded from that revenue.
