Dog Walkers, Please …
The Parish Council has received complaints from landowners of people walking around their fields with dogs, rather than sticking to the public rights of way.
Some dog owners are reported to be letting their pet loose and allowing them to foul in the fields, which has led to farm animals being harmed and, in a couple of cases, killed.
If you are lucky enough to own a dog, please remember:
- Although there is no actual rule requiring that dogs must be kept on a lead whilst on a public right of way, there is a requirement that they are kept under control and confined to the line of the path.
- You must at all times remove and responsibly dispose of any dog mess.
