Newbiggin Beach Dog Control Order 2020
Following the introduction of the Northumberland County Council (Dog Control) Public Spaces Protection Order order of 2020, throughout Northumberland dogs are not allowed in:
- All enclosed children’s play areas at any time of the year,
- The section of beach at Newbiggin by the Sea from the breakwater at Church Point to the beach access from the promenade at Sidney Crescent, between 1st May to 30th September each year, and
- The section of beach at Blyth from the beach access at Beachway to the beach access at the southern end of the Links Road car park, between 1st May to 30th September each year.
Following requests from residents for the lifting of the Dog Control Order with regard to Newbiggin beach and the effects of the control order on social distancing measures we requested clarification from Northumberland County Council.
Northumberland County Council have confirmed that the request for lifting of the Dog Control Order has been refused.
The extent of the Dog Control Order is shown on the plan below.
Residents are reminded that there are may other walking routes in and around our Parish that can be used as alternatives to the beach.
