These proposals involve designating parks or part of them as areas where dogs can be:
They also propose a borough-wide order making it an offence to fail to clean up after your dog.

I wonder if it might also be possible to designate certain areas of parks as middle class parent and child free?
Very witty, Rubber Teepee and your suggestion is not fanciful.
A good example of an area free of those irritatingly fastidious middle-class parents-and-children would be Tottenham, last summer. Now *that* was lots and lots of fun, wasn't it?
@ L. Riblin: I happen to know that there were loads of middle class parents and children in Tottenham last summer, some of which are my friends. And they were terrified. I'm not sure where you're going with this comment?
I'm sure Rubber Teepee's comments is tongue in cheek. Some people find dogs a niusance, others are not that keen on middle class parents and children. Parks should be for both. And everyone should learn to be considerate.
I public parks I have stepped in dog poo. Irritating. And smelly. I have been squirted with an out of control little darling's waterpistol, right in the eye. Also irritating. And paiful.
That's my point.
I'm going off topic here. Sorry.
There has been yet another report released today about the Tottenham riots - according to this extract local residents were not the only people in fear of their lives, the police were too.
Perhaps Anette will find this a good opportunity to respond to this, a sort of pre-consultation consultation on dog control orders. There will be further opportunities to respond in May.
