Dog owners could fetch a £100 fine if they don’t familiarise themselves with new changes to Cornwall’s dog beach ban.
Big changes are being introduced this year in a bid to make dog beach bans more consistent on beaches across the county.
Currently, 48 Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) are in place which limit when dogs can be exercised at different resorts, but the restrictions vary considerably.
In a bid to simplify the rules, Cornwall Council will be introducing new rules that will apply to many of the county's beaches.
The new rules consist of Dog bans on many beaches between 10am and 6pm between July 1 and August 31. Those new restrictions will stay in place for three years unless reviewed.
Dogs will be banned from the following beaches between 10am and 6pm from July 1 to August 31:
