Introduction

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.
