Council would like to know your views on the NSW Government's draft Companion Animal Management Plan (CAMP) for Callan Park to include them in its submission to the State Government. This plan has been prepared by Greater Sydney Parklands. If you would like to make a submission directly to the State Government please go to NSW Planning Portal

What's this plan about?

The CAMP provides direction on managing companion animals in Callan Park, including clearly identifying on- and off-leash areas for dogs and required infrastructure, amenities and experiences for dogs and their owners. The CAMP outlines principles and objectives that aim to balance the interests of all park users, including dogs and their owners, while minimising the potential for conflict between dogs and other park users and ensuring the safety of dogs, their owners and the broader community that uses and enjoys Callan Park.

The draft plan has three objectives:

  • 3.1 Callan Park is a welcoming park for dogs and their owners
  • 3.2 Protection of sites that are culturally significant for First Nations people, heritage and environmental areas, and wildlife habitats
  • 3.3 Community education and awareness ensures all users can enjoy and share the spaces and amenities within Callan Park
