Extend opening hours of Public Squares in Douglas

We, the under-signed petition that as dog-owners in Douglas, we are being punished by the new opening restrictions placed on the Victorian Squares. 8.45 in the morning is too late for most people to walk their dog due to going to work etc and 3.45 is too early to close, preventing people exercising their dogs in the evening and afternoon. Many of us have no gardens and our pets are suffering now without these squares to exercise in. We wish to see these hours extended to allow us to exercise our pets.

    7 years ago Comments: Derby Square is for public use and the diagonal path saves time walking around the square. I suggest a quarter of the square be allocated for the use of those who walk their dogs. Should the council be closing the square to keep out people, then I do not think closing the gates would be adequate - the fencing is easily scaled.
