    This should just be lifted until the Coronavirus stuff passes. People want to get out of their houses, and the beaches are the best places to do that. There’s no tourists, so who cares?

    Thank God… Its about time. And this should be perma implemented.
    I’ve seen ppl with their dog on the beach , pooing on the sand. That people walk on barefooted and lay on. It is a lack of respect, conscience and filthy behaviour.

    24/7 curfew coming, won’t be no dogs anywhere!

  4. The privilege of having a dog is tempered by the responsibility to clean up after it. It’s easy to do, but one careless owner spoils the freedom of everyone.

    It’s not just dogs they should worry about, I’ve been on many a beach and was shocked to see the amount of rubbish laying about left by humans, yes you get the odd lazy dog owner being irresponsible but you also get plenty of irresponsible non dog owners too. Clean up your rubbish too and keep the beaches clean.
