Amended Dog Management Policy

Council is seeking your input into proposed road classifications

Kentish Council is in the process of reviewing the current road hierarchy. A road hierarchy helps establish a desired road standard at times of reconstruction helps prioritise major works and assists justifying the level and frequency of maintenance and expenditure a road receives. Council is seeking feedback from members of the Kentish community on the proposed classification changes.
