I would like to take this opportunity to clear up any misunderstanding with respect to the City of London Corporation's proposals to implement some elements of the Dog Control Order which is being considered by the London Borough of Camden.
If appointed by Camden as its agent, the City's proposal is to introduce just three aspects of the Dog Control Order. Under the Dog Control Orders (Prescribed Offences and Penalties etc) Regulations 2006 it would be an offence on the Heath to:
q Fail to remove dog faeces;
q Permit a dog to enter any of the fenced play areas on the Heath;
q Have one person in charge of more than four dogs.
Despite rumours to the contrary, I want to reassure your readers that there is absolutely no intention to bring forward any restrictions other than those referred to above.
- 1 'Our beautiful boy': Bosco (and his big stick) dies after surgery
- 2 Unarmed man shot by police during prison break was ‘lawfully killed’
- 3 'Hostility for LGBT+ people': Mike Freer resigns from Boris Johnson's government
- 4 Police called to 'youth with knife trying to climb school gates'
- 5 Covid: North London hospital admissions rising amid national surge
- 6 Opening date confirmed for new Finchley Road Aldi
- 7 Fears Kenwood will become an 'entertainment centre' as application lodged
- 8 Jailed: 9 north London offenders put behind bars in June

- 10 Alexandra Palace: 2 hospitalised in Red Bull's Soapbox Race
In particular there is no plan to force dog owners or walkers to put dogs on a lead on any part of the Heath where such action is not so required at present.
The purpose of the introduction of these measures is to ensure that dog walkers maintain control and that the wildlife on the Heath is protected.
