St Ives Dog Ban Comes Into Force

Dogs have been banned from some of the most popular beaches in St Ives.

From Wednesday until the thirtieth of September, pets will not be allowed on Porthmeor, Porthminster or Porthgwidden at all.

Owners who take their pets onto these beaches will face an £80 pound fine.

Dogs can be taken onto the Harbour beaches before 8am and after 7pm between the 1st of May and 30th September.

They are also allowed on Carbis Bay Beach before 8am and after 5pm between 1st of May and 30th September.

There had been a complete dog ban in place before 2007 under the old Penwith District Council.

But that was partially revoked, allowing partial access for dogs during the busy summer months.

After a consultation with locals in 2012, St Ives Town Council decided to reinstate the full ban on Porthmeor, Porthminster and Porthgwidden.

Responses from locals included concerns about the health risks of dogs fouling on the beaches, worries about aggressive dogs, and fears dog mess could put off visitors.

The Dog Owners Group however, had argued a timed ban would be preferable.

In a report to St Ives Council last year, it said: "The current timed ban strategy as opposed to a seasonal ban is eminently the best strategy for our town. By no other means can the council provide dog free beaches in the daytime coupled together with sensible dog exercise facilities which match the expectations of dog owners, both locals and visitors alike."

St Ives Town Council have also made a dogs on leads order for the footpath from St Uny Church to Porthkidney Sands, Lelant.
