Hollesley Parish Council recently engaged the services of Playgrounds Inspector, Mr David Bracey, to review the Hollesley Recreation Ground and make recommendations.

One of the recommendations was to remove the confusing signs regarding dogs on the field and to review the Council’s policy, especially as evidence of dog mess close to the play equipment was found during the inspection. At their July meeting the Council discussed this matter and in conclusion decided to amend the policy on dogs being allowed on the Recreation Ground.

From 1st September 2021, dogs will still be permitted on the Recreation Ground but they must be on a lead at all times. In addition, with the exception of a Service Dog, dogs will not be permitted within 5 metres of any piece of Play Equipment.

This new policy will be reviewed after 6 months and new signage will be put up to make this policy clear.
