Dogs To Be Prohibited From Certain Beaches In East Yorkshire

There will be annual restrictions excluding dogs from certain parts of beaches along the East Coast from Sunday, 1 May.

In an effort to help families and visitors enjoy the seaside without being bothered by nuisance dogs or fouling, the exclusion will be in effect until 30 September.

Dogs are not allowed on the following beaches, which are the same as those affected by the dog exclusion in previous years:

Bridlington north beach – between the northern end of the North Marine Promenade to the north-eastern face of the North Pier. 

beach – between the southern face of the South Pier and the eastern face of Princess Mary Promenade. 

Hornsea beach – between the concrete ramp at Headland View and the steps south of Sands Lane. 

beach – between the first groyne north of the access ramp opposite Seaside Road and the beach access steps at Pier Tower.

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “The exclusion on dogs using certain areas of the beach lasts just for the summer season.

“The vast majority of owners know the importance of not taking their dogs on the beach in the summer months when children and families are playing in the sand but there are plenty of other areas on the beaches where dogs are still welcome.

“The exclusion zones form a key part of the criteria by which our beaches are judged for their annual Awards.”

In Bridlington, Hornsea, and Withernsea, owners are required to keep their dogs on leads in areas adjacent to beach exclusion zones.

Outside of the restricted areas, dogs are still allowed – the council simply asks that dog walkers clean up after their animals and be considerate of other beachgoers.

There will be regular patrols of the beaches and promenades by council officers, and anyone found breaking the rules will receive a fixed penalty notice of £75.

Officers will also patrol other areas to ensure dog owners clean up after their pets.
