Dog owners urged to have say
Council consultation on park ban closes this week
PET owners are being urged to have their say on plans to ban dogs from play areas, sports grounds and public gardens.
Newham Council is consulting on the measures, which would see canines barred from 137 locations across the borough.
Any responses must be in by Friday, January 14.
Kennel Club communications director Caroline Kisko urged all dog owners to make their views known.
“Dog control orders are becoming more common as councils attempt to find ways to control dog fouling and rein in irresponsible dog owners,” she said.
“Unfortunately, this often means responsible dog owners are penalised and have to suffer restrictions.”
