Cornwall Council have opened a consultation onto their summer restrictions on dogs on beaches.
This is a welcome opportunity for dog owners to represent their case, not least their legal obligations under the AWA 2006.
Only 20% of the population has children but 27% own at least one dog. Children are often not only a nuisance to other beach users and dogs but parents allow them to use the beach as a lavatory or dump used nappies.
Every beach user has moral and legal obligations to behave well and it is unfair that dogs have been excluded.
Have your say now – the consultation closes in November.
