Colwyn Bay ..... Another Dumped Mattress, Another Day!!!!!!

 Another Mattress left rotting in Colwyn Bay.

Colwyn Bay ..... The Skip and Dog Mess......

Dog mess fears for Colwyn Bay as annual beach ban gets underway

Conwy Council has issued a warning to dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets in parts of the county this summer

File Picture - Porth Eirias at Colwyn Bay with beach
Dog owners have been banned from walking their pets on parts of Colwyn Bay beach

I wonder if this move right in front of the Skip is for you know who's benefit? Of course the council jump when God calls ......
Dog owners risk fines of up to £175 if they are caught walking their pets on restricted beaches this summer and fail to clean up after them.
Conwy Council warn that dogs are banned from certain beaches in the county between May and September because they are busy with holidaymakers.
Some residents in Colwyn Bay are backing the ban.
Rob Monaghan of Colwyn Bay feels that dogs should be banned from the beach between Victoria Pier and and West Promenade because “careless and thoughtless” owners fail to pick up after them.
He is also concerned that the vast majority of dog owners allow their pets to roam free.
Mr Monaghan said: “I am a dog lover but I find it appalling that dogs are allowed on this beach where they invariably, as dogs do, defecate and urinate indiscriminately.
“Perhaps I have missed one or two but I see no signs at beach access points, or anywhere else on the promenade for that matter, warning the public of the penalties of not picking up dog mess.
“First and foremost dog fouling is a health hazard, I have been told of families whose young children have found dog excrement while playing in the sand.
“Tourism is very important to Colwyn Bay, and beaches must be near top priority.”

'Serious issue'

However, Mr Monaghan believes the best solution is for dog owners to take their pets to the area between the Porth Eirias and Old Colwyn end of the promenade all year round instead, claiming the beach there is more suitable.
He added: “Surely it makes a lot of sense, health-wise, financially, and for the future of tourism in Colwyn Bay to ensure that our beaches are clean, safe, and inviting for adults and children, visitors as well as locals.
“It will result in A cleaner, healthier and safer beach between Victoria Pier and West Promenade for adults and children to enjoy.”
Mr Monaghan has now contacted Conwy Council as well as Keep Wales Tidy in the hope that they will review their decision to allow dogs on this beach.
A spokeswoman for Conwy Council said Dog Control Orders came into effect in 2012 to oblige dog owners to clean up dog faeces; to keep dogs on a lead; to put dogs on a lead when asked to by an authorised officer, and also to prohibit dogs from specific locations.
She said: “The serious issue related to dog fouling and the control of dogs is one of the problems that gives the most cause for concern amongst members of the public and the council takes its responsibilities on the public’s behalf very seriously.
“Anyone who is caught allowing their dog to foul in a public place and failing to clean it up will face a fixed penalty notice (FPN) of £100.
“Dogs off their lead; not putting a lead on when asked by an authorised officer; or being in a dog exclusion zone will face a FPN of £75.
“Failure to pay the FPN will result in prosecution with a maximum fine of £1,000.”go

Firstly, I would like to quash the myth that this man is a “DogLover” as he clearly is not, this is the type of statement people make whenthey try to justify their ridiculous comments,
Most responsible dog owners do pick up after their dogs, andmost despise those fools that choose not to, I full support them being prosecuted for failing to clean up after their dogs, I would like to add a few points regarding this “story”
If a dog is going to defecate anywhere, and the irresponsible people are not going to pick it up, the beach is actually the best place for this to happen, as it’s the only place on earth that actually cleans itself twice a day!

This is a no go area for dogs between May andOct, and has been for quite some time, and it IS signed posted! He can’t have looked very hard

I suspect this is more to do with where he livesand nothing else, this is evident with his comments “why can’t they use the other side of the pier?” it’s still the beach! What difference does it make! Other than perhaps it’s not on his “doorstep”

I believe it's official name is Porth Eirias, however locals refer to it as the skip, due to it's build, so my apologies for any confusion, but please clarify the above request for the [Porth Eirias} on colwyn bay prom, just infront of the Eirias park entrance off the prom, thank you

Colwyn Bay .... More Vandalism!!!!

 This wire gate has been erected right next to the KFC in the center of town, due to vandalism and anti social behaviour.
And above a shop window smashed in the middle of town, just opposite WH Smith who have also had one of their doors smashed in. Lovely place Colwyn Bay.
