Dog Control Orders Review

Reviewing the Dogs on the Beach ban

Following a summer of implementation of the dogs on the beach partial ban, we shall be working with the County Council and interested groups to review how successful the ban has been and what can be done to support it further.

Options include relocating litter bins (dog poo in bags can now be put into ordinary litter bins), improving and increasing signage and providing more information about the dangers of dog feaces, especially to young children.

The Working Group will include Cllrs Anderson and Boon, and representatives from the local dog owners, the Bay Environmental Strategy Group and the Coastal Warden will be invited to participate too. A report is expected back to full Council for the February 2012 meeting.
