    There are many areas in the Borough suitable for exercising dogs which are not subject to the above
    Byelaw controls, however they are likely to be subject to dog fouling controls under the Dogs (Fouling
    of Land) Act 1996 (see Below). Please show consideration for other people when using these facilities
    and always clean up after your dog.

    All land which is open to the air which includes covered land open to the air on at least one side and to
    which the public are entitled or permitted to have access with or without payment.

    All highways which are carriageways and to which the public have access and which have a speed limit
    of 40 miles per hour or less, including grass verges, footways and footpaths adjoining such highways.

    Village greens but not rural common land.

    Urban common land.


    Carriageways with a speed limit of more than 40 miles per hour and the land running alongside them.

    Land used for agriculture.

     Land used for woodlands, i.e. commercial woodland as opposed to woodland used predominantly for
    recreational purposes.

    Land which is predominantly marshland, moor and heath.

    Rural common land.

    Note:- Clearly defined footways which go across non-designated land, would be subject to the
    provisions of the Act.
