Epsom dog walkers facing controls at popular park

Professional dog walkers in Epsom, Surrey, could face new controls after concerns about an increase in commercial dog walking.

Epsom & Ewell Borough Council is running a consultation to get views on people walking multiple dogs in Epsom’s Nonsuch Park.

Councillor Julian Freeman, Chair of the Nonsuch Park Joint Management Committee, said: “We are aware that Nonsuch Park is hugely popular with dog walkers and while most dog walkers are responsible, concerns have been raised about the growth of commercial walkers with multiple dogs.

“It is important that as many people as possible engage with the consultation, so the committee can understand park visitors’ thoughts, concerns and suggestions about dog control and commercial dog walking.”

Council officers will be at the park on 15 and 22 May to answer public questions.

The consultation will close on 3 June.
