Dogs and their owners in Longford may soon have a new space to stretch their legs if a planning application is met with approval.
The application, lodged with Northern Midlands Council, proposes the installation of “dog agility equipment” opposite the Austral Bricks site on Cressy Road.
The plans come after the council announced changes to dog control areas in July.
Equipment to be installed at the proposed would include a 1.2 metre high climbing frame, a three metre seesaw, an a-frame ramp, six weaving poles and three hoops of various sizes.

The proposed equipment would be located on the Cressy Road side of the triangular block, also bound by Catherine and Brickendon streets.
