Ranger Services

The Bellingen Shire Council Ranger Services play a significant role towards making our community a better place to live. Rangers work with the local community and other government agencies to promote compliance through both education and enforcement.

  • Rangers provide core services during normal office hours, Monday to Friday on (02) 6655 7300
  • The Rangers are also on call after hours for emergency matters only. These include public safety issues such as stock on public roads and serious dog attacks.
  • To report all after hours emergencies, please telephone (02) 6655 7300

The Rangers have a broad range of duties to conduct on behalf of Council and include such things as parking patrol, animal control, illegal waste dumping, general environmental protection and public safety and order, including the movement of stock from public roads and road reserves, community consultation and education in relation to law and enforcement matters.

Much of the work done by rangers results from requests from members of the community and often involves an investigation. In attempting to find solutions, our rangers attempt to help the community as a whole.

The Rangers ensure that a balance is provided to enable consistency in law enforcement to keep people safe as well as maintain the enjoyment of the local area and lifestyle for people within the community.
