Users of Jeskyns Community Woodland are being asked to give their opinion on proposed "dog zones".

The Gravesham park welcomes more than 240,000 visitors each year.

However, as the popularity of the woodland has grown, increasing numbers of dog-related incidents, accidents and complaints have been reported.

The Forestry Commission fears this problem has now reached the point where many visitors are being put off visiting the woodland.

It is holding an “online dialogue” to discuss possible solutions such as dog zones.

Jeskyns ranger Denise Bird said: “Unfortunately, the current number of dog-related accidents and complaints is unacceptably high so something does need to be done.”
