Falmouth park dog ban suggested

DESPITE widespread praise for the recent improvements made at Kimberley Park, the issue of dogs running loose in the area still needs to be addressed.
That was the message at a meeting of Falmouth Town Council’s finance and general purposes committee on Monday evening.
The meeting was discussing comments made by the judge during the recent Green Flag judging day, who described it as a ‘remarkable first time entry’ by the park.
The park was awarded a Green Flag, a national award that recognises the best public and community parks and green spaces. Councillor John Body said: “People have come up with nothing but praise for the new play area and the toilets.
“However, I have had no end of people including pensioners and parents complaining about dogs running around off their leads.”
Council clerk Mark Williams said: “Dog control orders are an emotive subject, but we are looking at what we can do.”
Councillor David Sterratt, chairman of the committee, added: “We are addressing the issue, but it takes time.”
