Dog beach at North Burns Beach

Does your puppy love the beach ? Nowhere to go between Whitfords and Quinns dog beaches? Please support this petition to zone a dog beach at North Burns Beach to lobby the City of Joondalup.

There is an evident lack of dog beaches available between the Whitfords and Quinns Rock allocated dog beaches (23kms apart). From the estimated 160,000 residents in the City of Joondalup, there is only access to one allocated dog beach (Whitfords). At present, there is significant enough travel time between the areas that it creates a barrier to taking City of Joondalup residences' canine friends for a walk after work. This is possibly the longest stretch of coast between dog beaches in the perth metropolitan area and is especially prevalent if you live in the regions which are almost in middle between the two locations.

As you would be aware, there are both mental and physical benefits to both being active and especially with your puppy and along a beach, what better ways are there to enjoy our lovely state's coastline and our greatest natural asset. The overall standard of living of City of Joondalup residents could be increased if there were more designated dog beach walking areas across within the region. It would also assist greatly with the mental health concerns arising from COVID-19, potential regional lockdown restrictions and it's impacts such as being isolated from interstate love ones.

My proposal is that the North Burns Beach area be rezoned as a dog beach for walkers. The proposed area of zoning which would create minimal disruption to nearby residences as it is situated on the border of the Tamala Park Conservation Area. There is also the ability to leverage off the existing carparking including the new additional bays that have recently been established. The beach also has minimal traffic as present as the main beach is often the preferred beach for swimming.

Please support this great cause and let's open up North Burns Beach to our four legged friends.
