Dogs on our beaches

Dog on Cleveleys beach

The majority of the coastline with public access is accessible to dogs. From 1 May - 30 September there is a seasonal dog ban on certain parts of our beaches to help keep our bathing waters clean and healthy.

The restricted areas are:

  • Cleveleys beach from Café cove to the Wyre borough boundary
  • Fleetwood beach from central car park (by the café) to the coloured beach huts next to the play area

During the dog ban season there are large parts of the beach where dogs are allowed so there’s still plenty of space to enjoy. Anyone breaching any of our Public Space Protection Orders relating to dogs will be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice.

Remember, it is unacceptable to not pick up after your dog on the beach. The sea washing it away is not an excuse – think about what happens until the tide comes in and how it will then affect the water quality. Always pick up after your dog and remember any bin will do.

Palm oil


Wyre has experienced incidents of palm oil washing up on our beaches which can be fatal for dogs. If you spot palm oil it’s important not to remove it yourself and to report what you’ve seen to the council by calling 01253 89100.
