23.5.18. From The Parish Clerk

Data Protection

I’m sure that you will have been bombarded by numerous companies and organisations with regard to the new data protection regulations  (GDPR) that are coming into force on 25 May 2018. The Corton Denham Parish Council and its website are also affected by these changes. We would therefore like to draw your attention to the Parish Council’s updated Privacy Policy Statement on the Parish website ( cortondenham.org.uk ) which will govern how your personal data will be managed by the Parish Council in future. You also need to be aware that photographs of village events are sometimes posted on the Parish website and, should you wish to be excluded from these, you should notify the event organiser accordingly.

Richard Thatcher (Clerk to Corton Denham Parish Council)

23.5.18. Summer in the Countryside – Dogs and Bonfires

Keep dogs under effective control (Extract from the Countryside Code)

When you take your dog into the outdoors, always ensure it does not disturb wildlife, farm animals, horses or other people by keeping it under effective control. This means that you:

  • keep your dog on a lead, or
  • keep it in sight at all times, be aware of what it’s doing and be confident it will return to you promptly on command
  • ensure it does not stray off the path or area where you have a right of access

Special dog rules may apply in particular situations, so always look out for local signs – for example:

  • dogs may be banned from certain areas that people use, or there may be restrictions, byelaws or control orders limiting where they can go
  • the access rights that normally apply to open country and registered common land (known as ‘open access’ land) require dogs to be kept on a short lead between 1 March and 31 July, to help protect ground nesting birds, and all year round near farm animals
  • at the coast, there may also be some local restrictions to require dogs to be kept on a short lead during the bird breeding season, and to prevent disturbance to flocks of resting and feeding birds during other times of year

It’s always good practice (and a legal requirement on ‘open access’ land) to keep your dog on a lead around farm animals and horses, for your own safety and for the welfare of the animals. A farmer may shoot a dog which is attacking or chasing farm animals without being liable to compensate the dog’s owner.

However, if cattle or horses chase you and your dog, it is safer to let your dog off the lead – don’t risk getting hurt by trying to protect it. Your dog will be much safer if you let it run away from a farm animal in these circumstances and so will you.

Bonfires

The number of bonfires you burn should be kept to a minimum and you

should always follow the ‘Good Practice’ guidelines.

  • Ideally bonfires should only be allowed to burn between sunset

and 10pm.

  • Only burn green waste when it is completely dry so it burns quickly

and causes minimum of smoke.

  • You should ascertain the wind direction and try to burn

when the wind will carry the smoke AWAY from neighbouring

houses. You should notify neighbours of your intention so that they

may close windows or remove washing from clothes lines.

  • Avoid burning on hot and humid evenings.
  • Once lit, the bonfire should be kept under supervision and should

be completely extinguished before being left.
