Plans to relax dog walking restrictions on Burnham beach attacked

Proposals to relax dog walking restrictions on Burnham-On-Sea beach have this week been given a 'thumbs down' during a council debate.

Town councillor Louise Parkin said she "vehemently objects" to any plans to increase the area where dogs can walk on the beach.

"It took three years of negotiations to introduce a ban on dogs on Burnham's beach and I would very strongly object to any changes," she said, citing health concerns.

Her comments came during a discussion at Monday's town council meeting where proposals to promote Burnham as a dog-friendly tourist destination were considered.

Dogs are currently not permitted on the beaches in Burnham-On-Sea during the summer months, however outside the summer period, different restrictions in place. Dogs are permitted on the beaches north of the sea wall throughout the whole year. A map is available here to show the restrictions.
