Dogs On The Beach – Existing Rules To Remain

SCDC has made the decision not to change the existing rules which ban dogs from the beach between 1st May and 30th Sept from Arwela Rd to the Spa Pavilion.

The reason the current dog ban came up for review was that the existing bylaws have got to be changed to Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) anyway – so proposals were put forward to vary the ban – and maybe introduce a wider area of beach but for shorter time periods.

However, after lengthy consultations including a public one which had 209 responses where 60% were in favour of the status que, and a separate Felixstowe Town Council/Felixstowe Forward consultation where from 221 responses 50% favoured keeping things as they were – the consensus of opinion has been taken by the council – and the current dog ban rules will remain in place.
