Dogs on leads

On 1September 1993, we made an order under section 27 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 for it to be an offence for anyone to cause or permit a dog to be on a public footway or grass verge adjacent to a designated road without it being held on a lead. Failure to do this may result in legal action being taken. Uncontrolled animals can bite, scratch, knock over or just frighten people of all ages. Dogs who are not walked on lead cause unnecessary accidents every week.  It is not safe to assume you have complete control over your dog just because it normally comes to you when it's called.

Dogs must also be kept on leads in a few sensitive areas in the Borough:

Under the Control of Dogs Order 1992, any dog on a highway or in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner either inscribed on it or on a plate attached to it.
