Better facilities and engagement with dog owners

Did you know that as well as being messy, dog poo enriches the soil by adding more nutrients which slowly kills the rare and sensitive plants on our heathlands?

During the months of March through till August, dogs that run and explore unsupervised through the heather can disturb rare ground nesting birds, meaning that they cannot protect their eggs and young, and if frequently disturbed they may abandon their nests.

The plans suggest a number of ways we could tackle these problems including more, regularly emptied, dog bins in the main car parking locations, better education and engagement with dog groups.
