We have taken the decision to introduce a charge for professional dog walkers in our parks, similar to neighbouring open spaces. The charge is proposed as £175 for a professional dog walker living in the borough and £300 for a non-borough resident. These charges are in line with those in neighbouring boroughs. For a resident dog walker, it equates to about 48p per day.
Barbecues and open fires are not allowed in any of our parks and open spaces unless part of an authorised event with special conditions. Unauthorised barbecues can result in burnt or scorched grass and they may reignite when disposed of without being put out properly.
