From 1 October dogs permitted back on Vale
Published on this website 24 September 2012
From 1 October residents and visitors to the Vale of
Glamorgan are reminded dogs are again welcome on Vale
The summer ban lifts from beaches at: Southerndown,
Llantwit Major, Cold Knap, Barry Island and Penarth.
Dog walkers are also reminded that the Vale of Glamorgan Council
is piloting a zero tolerance to environmental crimes.
Cabinet Member for the environment and visible services,
Councillor Rob Curtis, said: "XFOR officers are patrolling Vale
wide and watching for the incorrect disposal of litter - which
includes animal faeces.
"We respectfully request that wherever you are – on the beach,
visiting parks or walking along roads - every time you take enough
bags to pick up after the dog you are walking. Once bagged and tied
you can then use any council bin to dispose of the waste, or take
it home to be disposed of.
"Offenders should be aware that if caught, they will be issued
with a fixed penalty notice £75 fine – there is no excuse."
