New rules come into force for Sovereign Harbour dog walkers

Dog walkers using walkways around Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne must now keep their pets on a lead or risk receiving a fine. 

Following consultation, Eastbourne Borough Council is implementing a new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO).

Residents were consulted over the changes and breaching an order could result in a fine of between £75 and £1,000.

PSPOs are measures that councils use to tackle anti-social behaviour.
