Chichester District Council has said that there are a small number of areas where dogs are excluded at all times, including an area of the beach in Selsey.
However, there are other restrictions on some areas across the district which are in place under order of parish councils.
See below where you can and can’t walk your dogs on Chichester District beaches, and when these bans apply.
