Controlling your dog in public

Cornwall Council recognise that dog owners like to be able to take their dogs on beaches and public open spaces.  However we also realise that not everyone likes or enjoys dogs.  Therefore through extensive consultation Public Space Protection Orders have been introduced which restrict dogs from certain areas during certain times and dates.

Dates and times when dogs are currently restricted on designated beaches

If any of the conditions of the PSPO are breached, a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100 can be issued in accordance with the Council’s enforcement policy. Failure to pay may lead to prosecution and being liable, on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding level three (currently £1,000) on the standard scale.
