County seeking resident input on new Animal Control Bylaw


Short Survey available on County Website

Red Deer County Planning and Development is seeking input on a proposed Animal Control Bylaw. County staff are asking ratepayers to provide opinions through an online survey.

The survey asks questions on whether or not hens should be allowed in hamlets, the appropriate size of land for horses, goats etc. and the appropriate amount of dogs allowed on specific types of parcels.

According to Current Planning Manager Treena Miller, “Currently, Red Deer County does not address issues such as urban hens, nor does the County limit the number of dogs on a property. Based on increasing interest in keeping various animals on different parcel types, Red Deer County has decided it is time to undertake an Animal Control Bylaw. We are hoping the public will assist us by taking a short survey on these topics.”

County residents have until the end of November to answer the survey. There will also be 2 open houses held on the subject – one at Red Deer County Centre on Nov. 22 and one in Springbrook on Nov. 23. The open houses are open to members of the public, and will provide an opportunity to ask more specific questions to Planning and Development staff.

Currently, regulations pertaining to the keeping of animals on a property are contained within the County’s Land Use Bylaw. By creating a separate Animal Control Bylaw, the County will put these important regulations within their own specific document.
