Dogs on beaches controls in St Ives,Carbis Bay and Lelant

This is guidance for people on the controls relating to dogs on beaches in the St Ives, Carbis Bay and Lelant areas.

St Ives has always welcomed responsible dog owners and the town council appreciates the valuable role that dogs play in many people’s lives.

A careful balance has been struck in the St Ives area with the aim of enabling dog owners to enjoy the area’s beaches, while restricting dog access to the main bathing beaches during the busier holiday months.
