Residents have hit out a new dog orders being proposed by the Conwy Council.

Some of the new plans have been labelled crazy and a bit over the top by concerned dog owners as they took to Facebook last week.

Daniel Matthew said: It's a bit over the top. A beach is to be enjoyed by all, nobody has rights to a beach. Its hard enough trying to find anywhere around here to walk your dog. This is North Wales, and there is no designated areas for dogs. Everywhere I go - no dogs allowed - it's ridiculous."

Philip Andrews said: "Are you trying to put off people coming to Colwyn Bay? What with the parking charges on the prom that are just about to be introduced and now this, may as well kiss tourists goodbye.

Karen Williams said: "Unbaleavable. I have a 12 week old pup who needs socialising it’s great on the beach and a lot of lovely dog owner for advice. We seem to be penalised for not only keeping our dogs healthy and socialised but us as well."

However, new plans released as part of the Conwy County Borough Council's review of dog controls orders will see a majority of dog exclusion zones or areas where leads are required remain the same.

All areas will remain as they currently stand except for Llandudno North Shore and Penmaenmawr which will have dog exclusion zones significantly reduced.

Colwyn Bay beach will have its zone extended to the Groynes beyond the Pier with exclusions to be in place all year round.

The Craig-y-Don/Llandudno community paddling pool will becoming a full time exclusion zone while Llanfairfechan beach will also have a no go area for dogs introduced.

Bodlondeb will be added to the areas required to keep dogs on leads under new plans with exclusion zones on the tennis courts, sports pitches and children’s play area, as will sections in Dwygyfylchi.

Dogs on lead areas will also be altered in Cae Derw Playing Fields, Llandudno Junction and the Llanfairfechan recreation land around the boating lake.

A £25 increase for those not following the Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) and plans that would see dog owners required to carry bags or scoops to pick up any excrement left by their dog are also up for consultation, which is open unitl February 23.
