Dogs on Kingsley Common

As you know, Kingsley Common is a SSSI and dogs therefore need to be 'under close control' from March to July because of disturbance to ground nesting birds.  The MoD are also considering new Byelaws for all MoD land, including Kingsley Common which of course they own primarily for military training, because they are concerned about increasing problems with dog fouling and irresponsible dog-ownership and the consequent issues for their personnel.  Such a pity that the 'don't care' attitude of some dog-owners could affect all of us!

  1. I have never been a horse rider but it does seem to me that both the County Council and the Forestry Commission are (perhaps unlawfully?) guilty of discriminating against horseriders of all ages and abilities and forcing them onto busy roads.
    As to to the local Tory diehards ousting their Selborne Councillor for standing up for local issues and amenities, isn't this just what 'The Big Society' is all about or have I misunderstood what Mr Cameron has been telling us?
