A RUMOUR that East Devon District Council is to implement a dog control order, requiring dogs to be kept on leads at the Glen from April 1, is untrue.The authority says consultation results will be discussed by the council's corporate overview committee before any recommendations are sent to the council's executive board for ratification.Any new dog control orders will be advertised, to ensure residents are aware of the regulations.But dog owners in Honiton are to organise a public meeting and want support. They are against dogs being kept on leads at the Glen."That support is vital if we, as a group of responsible dog owners, are going to stand together because we care about the quality of our dogs' lives," said dog owner Ursula Squire."Their freedom to socialise with other dogs, run and play is about to be seriously curtailed."If you would like to attend the meeting, call or text either 07970021205 or 07796051917.
