FOBIF has received a response from the MAS Mayor, Christine Henderson, to our letter about the proposed off leash dog park in the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens. The mayor informs us that ‘Council has received and considered expert advice which confirms FOBIF’s concerns for the safety of the Eltham Copper butterfly colony. While no formal Council decision has been made, I believe that Councillors are of a mind to accept the advice and seek an alternative location for an off-lead dog park.’
