Amber Lucia started this petition to Bournemouth Borough Council

I've created a petition for a fenced in dog park in East Bournemouth, Dorset, potentially in the Iford area.

Dog enclosures/parks offer a safe space for owners to:

  • Socialise their dogs
  • Practice recall training
  • Exercise dogs who cannot be walked off the lead for health or behavioural reasons.
  • Meet with other local dog owners

Those who have visited the dog enclosure/park at Slade’s Farm, Ensbury Park will know what a great opportunity it offers dog owners and their dogs.

It's important to acknowledge that those living in East Bournemouth are not always able to travel as far as Ensbury Park and many experience access issues due to disability, frailty or lack of transport.

I emailed Bournemouth Borough Council on the 31st of January 2019 and this was the response:

"Dear Amber,

We’re glad you like the dog playground / training area at Slades Farm. We’d certainly support looking into a dog park for the eastern side of the town and Iford does seem to make some sense.

I’ll talk to my colleagues in Christchurch too about this, to ask if they have any current plans.

Meanwhile, if you wish to gain support for your idea through a positive petition then please feel free to do so.  Knowing that lots of people like the idea is a good thing for us."

If you feel wish to support this cause, please sign & share this petition.
