Dog ban is considered

DOGS could be banned from parts of Conisbrough, Mexborough and Denaby under plans to combat fouling and nuisance pets.

Dog exclusion zones are being put forward by Doncaster Council as part of the authority’s newly-created Environment Strategy which includes a raft of measures aimed at cleaning up the town’s streets.

In a report, which was due to be discussed by the council’s cabinet yesterday, the advice put before the council recommends promoting responsible dog ownership through media campaigns, publicising enforcement action and considering the use of dog exclusion zones.

The zones could be introduced in parks, public open spaces and streets in a bid to curb issues such as dog fouling.

A council spokesman said: “This is something that is in the very early stages.”
