Statement from Maker with Rame Parish Council – 3rd February 2023

Local MP Sheryll Murray has kindly offered to undertake a survey of views about potentially
increasing dog restrictions on local beaches within the Maker with Rame Parish. Whilst we
thank Sheryll Murray for her survey, it is not fully aligned with what the local community
asked for and invites responses from residents outside the Parish who do not necessarily
contribute to the management and expenses of local life.
Following discussion with and guidance from Cornwall Council, a decision must be made by
the end of February about the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for those beaches
affected over the period 2023-26. The final decision, to be made by Cornwall Council, will
give due consideration to local Parish community desires, followed by input from the wider
community. Whilst Sheryll Murray’s survey will attempt to address all aspects of the subject,
the terminology used does not fully reflect the substance of recent Parish Council and
Cornwall Council discussions which have focused on a specific restriction during the height
of the summer months (i.e. July, August) covering the period 10 am to 6 pm as opposed to a
complete ‘’dog ban’’.
The Parish Council will request sight of Sheryll Murray’s survey results and as proposed at
the Full Council Meeting on Monday, we will look to host an EGM to share the results and
discuss any issues arising. The timing of this meeting will be advised as soon as the results
are available. Please do contribute to the survey.
The Parish Council is mandated to make decisions on behalf of the local community,
managing a budget in support of local community wishes and desires. We will continue to
do this while liaising directly with Cornwall Councillor, Kate Ewert. The Parish Council has
committed to support whatever final decision Cornwall Council may wish to make with
respect to this subject and ask for your continued engagement and support in local
endeavours.
