North Tyneside Council to review dog restrictions

North Tyneside Council is to review its Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO), which is set to expire in October.

The restrictions currently include a seasonal ban on dogs from 1 May to 30 September every year in the southern parts of Whitley Bay and Long Sands beaches, King Edward’s Bay, and Cullercoats Bay.

Dogs are also prohibited from 55 play sites throughout North Tyneside and must be kept on leads at St Mary’s Island, Preston Cemetary, Benton Cemetery, beach promenades, and various other areas.

People caught breaching the orders can be issued with a fixed penalty notice of £100.

The council is expected to conduct a review to see if there is just cause to renew the orders and then there is likely to be a four-week public consultation.
