A request for it to be mandatory for dogs to be kept on leads in the parkland and wetland nature are

We, the undersigned, do respectfully request that the Council change local laws to make it mandatory for dogs to be kept on leads in the park and wetland areas in Princeton Private Estate, Stirling, and that sign posts are put in place advising of this. Some of the issues that have been experienced with uncontrolled dogs off the lead are as follows:- - the killing and attacking of bird life around the lakes and parklands, including chicks in the spring. - the harassment of local people, children and families trying to enjoy the open areas. - the harassment of children using the play equipment. - dogs fouling the paths/ gardens when out of sight of their owner when off the lead, meaning faeces is left behind as a health hazard to children in particular. - dog fights between uncontrolled dogs. - damage to flower beds while off the lead. It is recognised and appreciated that there are many responsible dog owners who keep their dogs under control, and that these people want to enjoy walking their dog on a lead around the Princeton Estate parks and wetlands. This petition in no way intends to diminish that ability, nor would it want to. Invariably these responsible owners keep their dogs on a lead currently and enjoy using the open areas. As an area used by so many families and home to so much wildlife, it is hoped to make this area safer and more pleasant for all users .
Please note - only valid, full addresses located within the City of Stirling's boundaries will be accepted.
