Cornwall Council Community Protection Team are asking for the community to give their views by completing the online questionnaire regarding the proposal for keeping all existing restrictions in place for dogs on beaches.
The survey runs until 12 January 2017 and can be completed online at www.cornwall.gov.uk/dogsonbeaches
Many people enjoy walking on Cornwall’s beautiful beaches but not everyone likes or enjoys dogs.
Dogs are restricted on some beaches at certain times of the year; the legislation that controls and restricts dogs from public spaces has been changed by the Government and Cornwall Council has to decide how to apply the new rules on beaches in Cornwall. The existing legislation, called Dog Control Orders, has changed to Public Spaces Protection Orders which are known as PSPOs. In introducing the new PSPOs, that restrict dogs from beaches at specific times, has given them the opportunity to review the existing restrictions.
More information about the dogs on beaches proposals, Dog Control Orders and PSPOs, is available on their website and in local libraries, information services and one stops shops, including:
