Pittwater has nine surf beaches on its eastern coastline, yet dogs aren't allowed on one! There are designated off-leash dog parks and places to let dogs swim on the bay side, but nowhere for owners and their dogs to enjoy the surf together. I propose that the southern end of Mona Vale Beach (the part that's adjacent to Mona Vale Golf Course) should be an off-leash area for dogs to enjoy the beach with their owners. Of course owners will need to take responsibility for their dogs and their business! But lets face it, they aren't going to leave syringes or beer bottles on the beach! If the residents can live with a sewerage outfall (which pumps out from Warriewood Headland), surely they can handle dogs on half of one of Pittwater's nine beaches.
