Despite the lockdown restrictions in place, your bins will still be collected, and we're still able to answer your calls. Stay safe, stay home and if you go out for any of the 6 reasons, remember your mask.
In Banyule, we limit which types of animals and how many of them you can keep.
Pigeons and domestic birds
If you want to keep extra animals, or goats, horses, roosters and other animals, you need a permit.
The permit helps us to ensure that our animals are well kept in sanitary conditions, and to avoid conditions that may be offensive or dangerous to health of people on surrounding properties.
Please make sure you microchip and register your dogs and cats with Council.
To apply for a permit to keep excess animals or birds:
We will inspect your property to make sure it is suitable for the type and number of animals you want to keep. We will let you know if your application has been approved.
