Green gifted

So, Geoff Patmore wants to ban dogs from Lancing’s beach and green? (Lancing Herald, July 31.).

How ironic at a time when Southern Water have just dumped huge amounts of human sewage into the sea and, following the recent hot spell, the beach has resembled a waste dump by inconsiderate day trippers seemingly unable to locate one of the many bins provided.

The green has been gifted to the residents of Lancing for recreational purposes and is therefore here for ALL of us to enjoy. That includes the many responsible dog owners and walkers living in Lancing because of this dog friendly haven who love and respect it.

I pay my taxes and both me and my dog are entitled to enjoy the beach and green in the same way families and their children can.

If the councillor is that bothered about a ‘major pollutant problem’ might I suggest he starts by stopping spouting such utter rubbish and focuses on the effects that the construction of the Rampion Wind Farm will have on our environment.
