A seasonal dog ban for beaches in Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and across East Devon came into force last week.

It covers all of the town beaches in East Devon, other than some designated areas on each of them.

Councillor Tom Wright, East Devon District Council’s environment portfolio holder, said: “We want to keep our beaches clean and safe for everyone who uses them, so, even in the ‘dogs allowed’ areas, dogs must be kept under control, close by, and on a lead if necessary. As a dog owner for many decades, I understand that some people feel apprehensive when dogs are running free and the restrictions are there so that everyone can enjoy our wonderful beaches.”

The ban runs until September 30. EDDC has also reminded dog owners and walkers that they must keep their animals on a lead on pavements and near roads, including on the promenades. Visit http://eastdevon.gov.uk/dogs/ to see the restrictions in full.
