Tahunanui main beach off-limits to dogs

16/02/2021 1:42am

Council has received a number of complaints recently about dogs on the main Tahunanui Beach – an area off-limits to our canine friends under the Dogs Control Policy and Bylaw. 

Dogs can be exercised safely and legally on the Back Beach, leaving the main beach free for people to swim, picnic and relax. There are also lots of reserves, parks and public places where dogs can be exercised both on and off-lead – go to nelson.govt.nz/dog-owner-responsibilities for maps and information on what being a dog owner in Nelson means for you and your hound.
