Views of dog walkers wanted for new survey
People who walk dogs on the Solent coast are being asked to share their likes and dislikes in a new online survey.
It is being carried out by the Solent Recreation Mitigation Partnership to build a detailed picture of the way different groups enjoy their time at the coast.
The survey aims to find out what dog walkers like about the coast, and what they look for in the places they choose to visit.
Initiatives might include creating new dog-walking areas closer to where people live or enhancing existing green spaces with features, such as dog agility trails.
The partnership wants to hear from everyone who dog walks on the Solent coast between Hurst Castle near Lymington and West Wittering, including Chichester, Portsmouth and Langstone Harbours and on the Isle of Wight coast between Colwell (near Freshwater) and Bembridge.
The questionnaire is available until March 31 at solentdogsurvey.co.uk
