Cardinia Shire Council has acknowledged a petition of 26 signatures which oppose a leash free dog area in Officer.
The petition is in response to public consultation which commenced in February to gather public response on the proposed off leash area in Goldsborough Drive Reserve.
Cardinia Council will now consider the petition as part of their wider public consultation process.
Residents will be able to discuss with councillors directly or via telephone, email and through social media.
A recommendation for the future of the proposal will be announced in June 2019.
