Issues referred to the Committee by Public Petition, Council, Cabinet, or another Committee pdf icon PDF 671 KB

(1)  Petition – Enclosed Dog Park

 

The Council has received a petition hosted on change.org relating to the following matter:

 

Petition Organiser: Sue Beer

 

“There are no enclosed area’s where dogs are able to safely run free, play and socialise provided by Dover District Council. All surrounding Councils provide these, Folkestone having five. Recently my dog who has good recall and only let off lead to play with other dogs in a fairly secure area picked up a scent and before I could stop her she disappeared. She was rescued in the traffic on Whitfield hill, we were so lucky and so grateful to the lady who stopped the traffic to save her, the outcome could have been very different she is now permanently on lead. Since Covid many more people have dogs and safe areas for them are desperately needed. I am hoping that if enough people agree we can change this situation.”

 

The petition has received 262 signatures at the time of this agenda’s publication.

 

In accordance with the Council’s petition scheme, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee may:

 

(a)  Recommend that the Cabinet or other Committee take the action requested in the petition;

 

(b)  Ask for officers to undertake further research into the matter and report back to the Committee;

 

(c)   Holding a public meeting into the matter;

 

(d)  Providing a written response to the petition organiser setting out the Council’s views about the request in the petition;

 

(e)  Take any other action that it considers appropriate including taking no further action.
