Dog walkers could be barred from St Ives' beaches during the summer.

At the moment they are allowed on between 7pm and 8am.

But town bosses say they are looking for a fairer deal for everyone.

A public consultation has started on a 24 hour ban.

Michael Gribble works on Carbis Bay beach and doesn't think it will work

"It won't work because as soon as we're all gone they'll just come down here and take the dogs on the beach anyhow. I don't think there are enough wardens around to cover the beaches anyway. It's a lost cause really"

"I think most of the people I've seen do pick up the stuff, I empty the dog bin here. But, you do get people who don't. It's the wardens you need. As soon as someone gets caught then they won't do it, because they know that someone is patrolling"

The beaches affected would be Porthminster, Porthmeor, Porthgwidden and Carbis Bay from the Sunday before Easter Sunday until the end of September.

St Ives Harbour beach would see a year round ban.

But in the summer dog walkers would still be allowed to exercise their pets on Bamaluz, Lambeth Walk and Porthkidney Sands.
