A few years ago English Heritage had a similar consultation when they wished to change the byelaws regarding dogs on leads at Kenwood.

At the time I distributed literally hundreds of documents detailing their proposals and how to register concern with DEFRA. I think that the number of objections registered was 57 but the changes were approved by the appropriate minister and implemented by EH. I have never been able to access the results despite numerous requests.

Similarly, when EH introduced charges in the car park at Kenwood there was a public consultation and once again the results have never been publicised.

I have also asked EH on many occasions whether members of EH would be exempt from parking fees but am still waiting for a response.

Byelaws on the Heath have always given managers the power to ban owners and their dogs from the Heath if a dog is out of control. I would have thought that these powers were quite enough.
