Dogs banned from Wellington Bay, may be allowed in summer

From Checkpoint, 5:55 pm on 31 October 2023

From tomorrow, dogs are banned from Oriental Bay in Wellington, but an effort is underway to allow pooches to roam the sandy shore during summer months.

Traditionally dogs can go on the beach in winter, but not summer.

The city council will listen to submissions tomorrow as part of its animal bylaw review which was last done in 2016.
