Dog Ban at Praa Sands Beach New proposal by Cornwall Council

The current dog ban that is in force at Praa Sands is due to be renewed to comply with amended legislation.


The original Act that gave legal power to the ban has expired and is replaced by a new Act.

New legislation: Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing act 2014

Original Legislation: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment 2005

The effect of this change will be that any new order to exercise Dog control will automatically become a Public Space Protection Order. All orders made under this Act will, after October 2017, will need to be renewed every three years.


Cornwall Council proposes that it:

  1. Revoke all existing Dog Control Orders on the currently listed beaches. (Praa Sands is listed)
  1. Revoke all existing Dog Prohibitions under the Cornwall county Council Act 1984.
  1. Create new Public Space Protection Orders for the beaches listed.


Cornwall Council also proposes to keep the same conditions, times, dates and durations currently in force.
