Isle of Wight Council is reminding residents who own dogs that annual restrictions are shortly coming into force on which beaches they can walk their pets on.

Under the council's Dog Control Orders, from 1 May to 30 September 2009, owners will not be allowed to walk their dogs on a number of beaches across the Isle of Wight, although several beaches and areas of coastline will continue to be accessible to dog walkers during this period.

A full map of the locations of the dog exclusion zones can be found by logging onto www.iwight.com/dogorders/maps.asp

Any owner who is found to be breaking the restrictions may be liable to pay a fine. These range from £50 up to £500 for walking a dog on a prohibited beach.

Other Dog Control Orders remain in force throughout the year which carry fines if owners are found to be breaking them. This includes keeping dogs on leads on roads and pavements that are maintained by Isle of Wight Council, and cleaning up your dog's mess.
