Permit dogs to enter cemeteries in the City

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to change the local bylaws in place across the city that currently prohibit very well behaved dogs from entering the cemeteries across the cities. Add waste bins to the cemeteries to ensure that dog walkers clean up any mess. Enforce dogs in the cemetery being maintained on a leash for no longer than 1.5m in length

The blanket ban on dogs in cemeteries is not fit for purpose and prevents people from utilising these spaces fully whilst being respectful to the deceased.

Many families now include a dog across the city and these dogs are mostly well behaved, there is a range of bylaws to tackle antisocial dogs and these should be utilised without completely banning dogs from these beautiful spaces.

I have loved ones in the Cemetary at Woodvale and would love to visit the memorial plaque with my canine companion but cannot due to these antiquated and discriminatory bylaws.

This ePetition runs from 23/05/2022 to 19/10/2022.
