LYNDHURST Parish Council will consider installing a dog exercise area in the village’s recreation ground following a resident’s request.

A recent meeting of the council heard how the villager, who was described as “suffering with mobility”, had written a letter after finding it increasingly hard to walk her pet.

The resident described how she was unable to let it off its lead as she would be unable to catch it if it ran off.

She asked the council to build a secure, fenced-off area to allow her dog to play safely off the lead at Coles Mead recreation ground, which has a no-dogs policy.

Cllr Brice Stratford said he felt the idea “was worth looking into”.

However, parish council chair Cllr Chris Willsher said he was against the idea as he felt the Coles Mead rec should remain dog-free.

Members agreed to look into how much the scheme might cost before deciding.
