Public consultation on seasonal restrictions for dogs on beaches in Cornwall

Cornwall Council currently has 48 Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) that apply restrictions at certain times of the year for dogs on beaches across Cornwall.

The PSPOs have to be reviewed every three years. The existing PSPOs expire in April 2020, so Cornwall Council are asking for views before the new restrictions are drawn up.

The consultation is an online survey on the Council’s website  http://www.cornwall.gov/uk/dogsonbeaches and runs until 19 November 2019. Information packs are available at libraries and Cornwall Council Information Services and offices, and there is assistance available at these locations for anyone who needs help to complete the questionnaire online.

Consultation responses will be presented to Cornwall Council’s Neighbourhoods Overview and Scrutiny Committee.

St Mawgan-in-Pydar Parish Council is able to award two types of small grants (The Local Government Act 1972 s137) to organisations whose work benefits the Parish of St Mawgan-in-Pydar and its residents.…more

The Parish Council is divided into two wards, St Mawgan Ward and Trenance Ward.

Whilst councillors are elected to the individual wards, in practice all 12 members serve the whole parish serving a population of approximately 1,176. For responsibilities of individual councillors refer to the Working Groups page.

The whole Council is usually elected every four years and therefore, following
the elections in May 2017, the next election will now be held in 2021.

The existence of the Parish Council ensures that the Parish’s views,
requirements and opinions are well represented to Cornwall Council and
in turn to central Government and statutory authorities. The Parish
Council is consulted on all Planning Applications concerning the parish
and forwards its recommendations accordingly. This ensures local knowledge
is taken into consideration when the final decision is made by Cornwall
Council, Planning Department
