Cardiff City & County Council All Party Group Responsible Dog Ownership Conference – All Welsh Local Authorities Invited:
This is to inform you all of the above Conference organised by the Cardiff City & County Council who as a Local Authority have been extremely supportive of the CWU ‘Bite-Back’ Campaign in Wales and following discussions have agreed to be a trial Local Authority for Dog Licensing and Dog Control Notices, subject to Wales Government endorsement.
A number of meetings have taken place with Wales Government Ministers to seek their agreement to extend Dog Control Measures over and above the UK Government measures associated with the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 as Amended in 2014.
At this meeting, the Leaders of all Wales Local Authority Councils have been invited to attend and participate with the aim being to raise awareness, grow support across Wales and get the Wales Government to introduce the appropriate legislation. I will be delivering a presentation of the CWU position and demands. The Wales Government Minister responsible for Dog Control will be speaking along with the Cardiff City & County Council Leader.
Wales Branch ASRs and Reps have been invited to attend the event and I look forward to seeing those attending on the day.
