Cat curfew

Find out about our night-time cat curfew and what it means for cat owners and the environment.

From 1 January 2021, the City of Darebin night-time cat curfew (from 7pm to 7am) will come into effect. The curfew applies 7 days a week, year-round.

This means that residents must keep their cats confined within their property boundary during this time.

Council resolved to introduce a cat curfew at its meeting on 17 August 2020 after community feedback largely supported the initiative.
