Existing Bye-Laws Dogs on Leads Areas
There are areas across Fylde that are designated under the Fylde Borough Council Byelaw Dogs on Leads prohibiting dog off leads and exclusion of dogs from certain areas. The act requires that no person shall, without reasonable excuse, permit a dog to enter or remain in the designated area unless the dog is held on a lead and is restrained from behaviour giving reasonable grounds for annoyance. These bye-laws can only be enforced through prosecution which could result in a fine up to £1,000 and the dog owner having a criminal record.
