Dog control order on Whitstable seafront (July 2017)

There is currently a dog control order covering the stretch of seafront between The Street and Pier Avenue. This requires dogs to be kept on leads on the promenade in this area, as well as excluding dogs from the beach itself, between 1 May and 30 September.

The law has now changed and we have to replace our current dog control orders with Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) by October 2017.

Next steps

Consultation closed earlier this year.  Thank you for all the comments received.

A decision was made in September 2017 that the existing area for dog control will remain.
