Banned dogs on beaches near St Ives

Did I read somewhere that dogs might be banned from all beaches in this area? Or have I hopefully dreamed it?!!

I really don't like dogs on bathing beaches in the height of summer - too many bad experiences. Dog poo, dog wee, uninvited dogs to our picnics, uninvited dogs playing beach games with our balls etcThe vast majority of the population do not own dogs so will likely see this ban more as a good thing rather than a bad thing.

I understand that people love their dogs but please understand there are many of us who aren't so fond of dogs. There is always an abundance of dog poo and yet not a single owner will admit to not clearing up after their dogs. I live I the Peak District and we have lots of visitors with lots of dogs leaving lots of dog mess. It's not all down to one person so their must be a mindset amongst a sizeable minority that its okay to leave their dogs mess for others to stand in. Nice.

Just back from 2 great weeks down in SW Cornwall. The only downside - and quite a big one, was the general lack of dog friendly beaches. The majority of beaches operate seasonal dog bans which in the summer are only accessible first thing in the morning or during the evenings. There are only a few beaches that have all-day summer dog access, however, these are either rocky (e.g. Cape Cornwall), well away from parking, or in the case of Pednvounder with very tricky access that is not for the faint hearted. Arguably the best - well only, year round dog friendly beach is Porth Kidney to the east of St Ives. Overall, this did disrupt our holiday it was just disappointing that many of the lovely beaches we couldn't visit. I'd imagine families with both children and dogs would find this totally disruptive. So come on Cornwall County Council - lets have a little more balance.

to be fair one of the biggest and best beaches in the whole of Cornwall doesn't have a DCO and thats the beach all the way from Hayle to the steps at Peters Point, with the rest of the beach to Godrevy only having an 8am-7pm ban
