Dog Exclusion Zones come into force on four East Riding beaches on 1 May
East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Coastal Services team are reminding all dog walkers that the annual dog exclusion zones on Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea beaches will come into effect from Saturday, 1 May and will remain in place until 30 September, 2021.

The four beach areas affected by the dog exclusion zones are:
Bridlington north beach - from the north pier to a line extending east from Limekiln Lane.
Bridlington south beach - from the south pier to a line extending east from Kingston Road.
Hornsea beach - from Headland View to a line extending east from Sands Lane.
Withernsea beach - from the steps to the north of the slipway at Seaside Road to the steps opposite Memorial Gardens.
The areas of the promenades in Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea adjacent to the beach exclusion zones carry a restriction requiring owners to keep their dogs on leads in those areas.
Outside the restricted areas, dogs are still welcome, along miles of beaches - all the council asks is that dog walkers clean up after their animals and are considerate of other beach users.
Council officers will carry out regular patrols of the beaches and promenades and any owner found breaking the rules will receive a £75 fixed penalty notice.
Officers will also be patrolling other areas to make sure owners clean up after their dogs.
