Are dogs allowed on Canvey Beach?

Dogs are not allowed on the beach in areas near to the Paddling Pool and adjacent to the beach areas (approximately from the Concorde Café to Labworth Café). There are signs present in this area to remind owners.

Dogs are allowed on other areas of the beach so long as they are under the control of the owner and dog fouling is cleared up by the owner.

Between September to March dogs can be walked along the whole beach.
