THE summer beach ban for dogs in Devon is over.

The seasonal restrictions, which apply on many of the bigger and more prominent beaches, have been lifted.

Many beaches across Devon adopt some sort of code of conduct over the summer months, usually restricting dogs from parts of the beach between May 1 and September 30, however, there are some beaches in the county that adopt a year-round dog beach ban.

Here’s everything you need to know about the dog restrictions on Devon’s beaches:

Teignbridge

Dogs are permitted on all beaches in Teignbridge between October and March 31, except past groyne 9 at Dawlish Warren, where dogs are banned all year round.

South Hams

All South Hams owned beaches allow dogs in the winter months, with the summer ban coming back into force on May 1, while the summer ban at Mothecombe beach is also over.

But the privately owned Blackpool Sands beach adopts a seasonal no dogs policy, which means that dogs are not allowed onto the beach or the car park until November.

 

Torbay

The summer dog ban has been lifted on all beaches in Torbay, meaning from 1 October until 1 May dog walkers may exercise their dog freely on all beaches in the Bay.

East Devon

From October to May you may walk your dog freely on all the beaches.

North Devon and Torridge

Tunnels beach, Ilfracombe

Dogs are allowed through the tunnels on a lead but not on to the beaches all year around.

Hartland

There is a year-round dog ban in place.

Woody Bay

No dogs allowed at any time of year

Woolacombe beach

Zone A – no dogs between April 1 and November 1; Zone B – on a lead from May 1 to September 30; Zone C – no restrictions.

All other beaches allow dogs from October to April, or all year around
