The deadline for returning the questionnaire is 28 September 2012. Explanation of the current and proposed orders: Porthkidney, Bamaluz and Lambeth Walk beachesDogs are currently allowed on these beaches at all times all year round. This situation would remain unaffected by the proposed orders.Carbis Bay, Porthgwidden, Porthmeor and Porthminster Beaches
These are the main bathing beaches for St Ives and Carbis Bay.
Dogs are currently excluded from these beaches from 1st May until 30th September, bewteen 8am and 7pm.
It is proposed that dogs will be excluded from these beaches at all times from the Sunday before Easter until 30th September. This would extend the period of the exclusion to cover most of the Easter school holidays and would make the beaches dog-free at all times of day during the most popular times of the year.
Dogs are currently excluded from the beach from 1st May until 30th September, between 8am and 7pm.
It is proposed that dogs are excluded from this beach all year round, at all times on the principle that it is a working harbour. This would give St Ives a beach that is dog-free all year round.

There are currently no controls on dogs for this path.
It is proposed that dogs should be kept on leads on this path. This is proposed in order to prevent nuisance by dogs off the lead.
