Bylaw to require dogs on leads on public paths in Hackney
We believe that all Hackney residents should be able to walk on public streets without fear of being intimidated by dogs off lead, and are concerned by the number of pets being injured or killed by such dogs.
We recognise that dogs need exercise and that therefore any bylaw requiring them to be on lead should not apply to parks or open spaces.
We, the undersigned, petition Hackney Council to make a public commitment, by 12 noon on Thursday 6 May, to pass a bylaw requiring dog owners and walkers to keep the dogs for which they are responsible on a lead when on public streets and pavements.
The Bylaw to require dogs on leads on public paths in Hackney petition to Hackney Council was written by Shakespeare Residents' Association and Butterfield Green Users' Group and is in the category Local Government at GoPetition.
