Meeting called for St Ives dog ban opposition
ST IVES Dog Owners Group (DOG) are holding a meeting on Tuesday (November 20) for "anyone who has concerns over the new dog bans."
DOG rallied opposition to the 24-hour summertime dog bans on St Ives' key bathing beaches that were nonetheless voted in by councillors last week.
Many business owners as well as locals and visitors who want to walk their dogs on the town's beautiful beaches expressed concern after the bans were voted in by St Ives Town Council.
Now DOG wants to bring together anyone who has concerns over the ban - and especially St Ives businesses - to discuss a way forward.

The group have said they intend to continue to oppose the new Dog Control Orders banning dogs from Porthgwidden, Porthmeor and Porthminster from the Sunday before Easter until October every year (previously dogs were allowed on before 8am and after 7pm).
DOG say they have already had pledges of financial support to mount a legal challenge to the ban but are keen to hear from all parties first.
The meeting will take place at 7pm on Tuesday in the St Ives Society of Artists.
