CONSULTATION – DOG CONTROLS ON BRAMPTON MEMORIAL PLAYING FIELD

The Memorial Playing Fields were established in part (and added to over the years) in the 1950s, acquired by the Parish Council to provide recreational sports facilities for Brampton residents and their families.

The Parish Council (PC) has had a bye-law for many years that dogs must be kept on a lead on the Memorial Playing Field. This bye-law (and all other PC bye-laws for Public Open Spaces) was invalidated by
the Governments new laws for Public Open Spaces, 2015.
Since that time PCs have not been able to create new bye-laws for any area that is a Public Open Space. For any control of dogs, we have to apply to the District Council to create a dog control order on our behalf.

Due to the constant pollution of dog litter being left uncleared by dog owners, and despite our many pleas through local media, and the many friendly signs all around the field, the council decided to request an
order that again requires dogs to be kept on a lead.

Dog Control Survey- Brampton Memorial Field

Brampton Parish Council (BPC) has made a request to Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) to introduce a new dog control in Brampton’s Memorial Field. BPC has asked that the Memorial Field be designated as a Dogs On Leads area. This would mean that dogs would only be allowed in the Memorial Field if they are on a lead and would not be allowed to walk or run off-lead at any time.

This request has been made because of persistent dog fouling in the Memorial Field, resulting in nuisance and hazard to other users of the Memorial Field. This has been going on for some time and other means of preventing this, e.g. polite signage, have not solved the problem.

Before considering this request formally, HDC is carrying out this consultation exercise which will allow all users of the Memorial Field to express their views on the desirability of introducing this new control on dogs.

Please follow the web link below to take part.
