Controversial plans to ban dogs from the main beaches in St.Ives during the summer months will go ahead next year.
The move was backed by the town council last night. But dogs will be allowed on the harbour beach early in the morning and in the evening.
The question of whether or not to exclude dogs from the main beaches at St Ives in Cornwall is being hotly debated later.
If it goes ahead, the ban will come into force from next summer.
St. Ives Town Council will decide tonight on whether to ban dogs from beaches in the town from next summer.
The proposal is for a daytime ban on harbour beach in summer and a total summertime ban on the other main beaches. Dog walkers in the town are angry that the suggested alternative beaches are unsuitable at high tide.
