Darwin council in the Northern Territory enforced the new Cat Containment Policy in the developing suburb of Muirhead on Tuesday night. 

The policy was introduced by alderman Robin Knox who is hoping to extend the new laws to other suburbs within the council.

'I have chosen to state new developments because I do feel it may be confusing for people who already live in other suburbs,' she told NT News

'Initially I'm asking for it to be applied (in Muirhead), in future we can educate further suburbs.'

Similar laws have been proposed by other Australian states.

In certain areas within the ACT cats are required to stay within their houses and if found outside, the owner could be slapped with a fine up to $1500.

More to come.
