Seasonal dog ban’s on some of the main tourist beaches in the Borough of Scarborough on the Yorkshire Coast begin normally on or around the 1st May as from the 1st of May 2011.
These restrictions, which prohibit dogs from certain stretches of local beaches, come into force on Sunday’s on or around the 1st May and continue until around the 30th September and cover the following areas:
On Filey Beaches:
From Royal Parade to the beach slipway which separates the Coble Landing from the Promenade.
Scarborough’s North Bay Beach:
From the northernmost beach slipway at the Sands development (Peasholm Gap) to the beach steps immediately to the south of the beach slipway at Scalby Mills.
Scarborough’s South Bay Beach:
From the West Pier to the southernmost flight of steps leading to the beach at the roundabout adjacent to the underground car park.
On Whitby Beaches:
From the West Beach from the West Pier to the east side of the beach steps adjacent to the western end of the beach chalets.

A number of new and replacement signs together with pavement stencils at the entrances to the above locations will be used to identify where dogs are not allowed to access the beaches. All other beaches within the borough are available for the exercising of dogs during this period. Normal rules on dog fouling ‘clean up’ requirements apply to these areas.
