Council put proposed control order out to public consultation ahead of decision.
TORRIDGE District Council is asking for public opinion on plans to place a ‘dogs on a lead by direction’ control order on Northam Burrows.
The proposal would apply all year and would mean dog owners who refused to keep a dog on a lead when directed to by a council officer would be committing an offence.
Owners would be directed to place their dog on a lead when officers believed the dog or its owner are causing, or appear likely to cause, a problem.
Roger Johnson, deputy leader of the council, said: “We really do want the public’s views on this so I would urge people to take this opportunity to have their say.”
