Should dogs be banned from parks?
Dogs have been banned at 72 park sites in a Nottinghamshire district after some owners failed to clean up after their pets. Should dogs be allowed in parks?
Dog owners say the measures, which have been brought in by Newark and Sherwood District Council, are unfair on people who do clean up dog waste.
Councillor Nora Armstrong said: "These powers, which also help us to control where dogs are taken and how many, should help us make sure more people enjoy a cleaner, greener and safer environment."
West Somerset Council has also banned dogs from 20 places including parks, play areas and sea fronts. And many other areas of the UK have banned dogs from certain areas at certain times.
Should dogs be banned from other public places? Or should dog walkers be restricted to certain areas? Are you a dog owner? What do you think of this ban? Where will you walk your dog?
