Beach dog ban set to start at Seaton and Beer
Owners who allow their pets on East Devon’s holiday beaches face being collared
DOG owners who take their pets to Seaton or Beer beaches from next month face being collared.
Animals are banned from the holiday beaches at both resorts between May and September.
East Devon District Council says its enforcement officers will be out on patrol from May 1, checking the dog free areas, ready to dish out �80 fines to people who break the rules.
A spokesman said: “The restricted areas are clearly signed and visitors to the beach are advised to check these signs before taking their dogs onto the beach.

“Nowadays most people understand that they must pick up after their dog. In fact EDDC’s contractors currently remove a staggering 270 tonnes of dog excrement per year from their 350 dog bins across the district. Unfortunately a few people still fail to pick up after their dogs.”
