Three local bylaws are being changed, pending community feedback.

The city council has drafted changes to its bylaws about dog control, the keeping of animals, and the work of beauticians, tattooists and skin piercers.

It's mandatory for the council to review bylaws every 10 years.

The changes are based on surveys of residents, and are open to public feedback until the 25th of February.

They include more restrictions on walking dogs in public, especially on beaches and around wildlife.

The council's proposing to give greater freedom in some respects to beauticians, tattooists and piercers, but it's cracking down on unregistered operators.
