Dogs on leashes debate postponed in council meeting

THE Fraser Coast Regional Council's debate on a proposal to change the local laws to allow dogs on leashes on to the popular beaches along Hervey Bay's esplanade has been postponed.

The issue was raised by Cr Stuart Taylor in response to questions from Esplanade cafe owners.

Cr Taylor, appearing via phone link, asked that the item be deferred to the next meeting as he had not had time to review the report.
