Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 05 Hansard (Thursday, 10 May 2018) . . Page.. 1961 ..

Movable signs located on public unleased land are regulated under the Public Unleased Land (Movable Sign) Code of Practice 2013. Where rangers identify a movable sign located on public unleased land that is non-compliant with the Code rangers engage with the owner of the sign and remind them of their responsibilities and obligations. Where non-compliance continues, or where re-offending is identified, enforcement action is taken.

Since 1 July 2017 City Rangers have received and responded to 54 complaints of non-compliant signs. Most of these complaints were in relation to movable signs. In July 2017, rangers responded to reports of four billboards erected on public unleased land in Gungahlin. After engaging with the business responsible for their erection, a warning was issued and the business removed all four billboards and reinstated the land to its original condition.

On 19 March 2017, ACT Policing requested Domestic Animal Services (DAS) assistance at 41 Molesworth Street in Watson, to assist in the management of a dog while they executed a warrant on that location. DAS Rangers attended the address and secured a female dog and litter of eight puppies whilst police safely entered the premises and executed the warrant. The female dog and all puppies were released back to their keeper immediately after the police operation, as the puppies were under 12 weeks of age and there was no evidence that they were being bred for profit or commercial gain, nor any injuries or welfare concerns held for the dog or puppies. The dog was not treated by a veterinary surgeon.
