Excess animals permits
To keep additional animals, you need to complete an application for an excess animal permit form.
Consent of all adjoining neighbours is required. A local laws officer might visit your property or contact you for additional information.

A maximum of 10 birds is allowed on land that is less than 400 square metres in size.
**Roosters cannot be kept on land that is less than 400 square metres in size. Properties between 400-5000 square metres require a permit to have a rooster.

Changing the number of animals
If you need to increase the number of animals a new application for an excess animal permit needs to be completed.
If the number of animals you have decreases you don't need to complete a new permit, simply contact Council's Customer Service so we can update your records.
