New dog rules from next week

DOG control orders will come into force on Monday, with new regulations to be introduced at a number of public open spaces.

North Somerset Council is introducing the orders to encourage responsible dog ownership and to curb the issue of dog fouling across the district.

They will see dogs banned from some areas and in others, rules but in place to ensure the animals are kept on leads at all times.

The introduction of the orders follows a public consultation in June.

Dogs will be banned from areas including Tickenham Village Field and the ponds at Portbury Ponds (not the surrounding land).
