Geraldine Lockyer, president, BARCO

BARCO Inc (Brunswick Area Responsible Canine Owners) would like to remind our canine-owning community and those who bring their dogs to Byron Shire on holidays of their responsibilities.

All dogs must be under effective control at all times, from leaving the car park with your dog on a leash to any off-leash dog exercise area, including our off-leash beach areas. Allowing your dog out of the car to run around is against the law and will attract a fine of $220.

It is your responsibility to clean up after your dog and place its doings into a garbage bin; failing to do this is also against the law and will attract a hefty fine of $275. The north of the shire in particular has plenty of dispensers with bags for this purpose.

For the holidaymakers who bring their pets, the laws are the same as anywhere in the state: we may be a laidback community but please respect these laws as well as the residents of this shire.

Be thoughtful of other people, and respect all of our community members.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
