If the dog ban remains from April to September, why cant the council allow dog walkers on the beach before a certain time in the morning and after a certain time at the end of the day ( this is done in Cornwall) or put the ban back to the start of May. Most dog owners are considerate in the way they leave the beach, unlike some people who leave all their rubbish behind.
Why is this important?
The local people take pride in their beaches and love to walk their dogs on them, why should we have to be ruled by what the councils say. I appreciate its important for tourism but its also important to the people who live here, all year round.
