Dogs will only be allowed on one side of the beach all year


Garff Commissioners has introduced new dog byelaws to include a requirement to pick up faeces at all times. 

A new restriction means the section of the beach from the harbour to The Shed cafe will have a summertime ban starting on 1 May until 1 September. 

They won't be allowed on that stretch between 10.00am and 6.00pm every day.

Dogs are allowed at all times on the section beyond The Shed cafe, but dog owners must clean up after their pets. 

Signage to outline the byelaws has been installed on Laxey Beach and additional information signs will be installed to help clarify the byelaws in the coming weeks.

A hotline to which incidents of dog fouling can be reported has also been set up using the telephone number 264808.
