Dog poo must be taken away from Seven Mile Beach
Reminder to all dog walkers that all dog poo must be bagged and taken off-site by dog walkers. Bags of dog poo should not be left in the Parks and Wildlife Service carpark or outside the Parks building. There is also no supply of dog poo bags at this carpark so please bring your own bags.
The Parks and Wildlife Service has placed a number of signs at the carpark near their office reminding dog walkers to remove dog poo.
The Clarence City Council removed the dog poo bin in the Parks and Wildlife Service carpark some years ago. The Hobart Dog Walking Association wrote to the Clarence City Council and Parks and Wildlife Service requesting the bin be reinstated. However the Council advised they would not be reinstating the bin due to servicing costs and there are other dog poo bins in Seven Mile Beach which dog walkers could drive to.
It is highly unlikely the dog poo bin will ever be reinstated, particularly now part of Seven Mile Beach Road is closed due to the planned extension of the Hobart Airport runway. The road closure means you can no longer drive along the road running behind the beach.
