Dog walkers are being reminded to keep off restricted beaches in a bid to keep shores clean.
Swale council is urging people to make sure they are reading signs in the borough which indicate their canine friends are not allowed in certain areas.
Between May 1 and September 30, dogs are not allowed in restricted areas and need to be kept on leads on the promenades at three popular hotspots on Sheppey.
Minster Leas, at the promenade and beach from the Playa Pub and east to the vehicle ramp opposite Little Oyster Cafe, is one area where they are forbidden.
The rule is also in place om Sheerness – at the promenade and beach from Jacobs Bank to the steps over the sea wall which lead to the swimming pool.
The final location is in Leysdown, at the promenade and beach from Stokes Amusements to the beach steps and opposite the small roundabout at the seaward end of The Promenade Road.
A council spokesman said: “With the summer weather now here and more of us enjoying Sheppey's beaches, help us all to enjoy them by clearing up when you leave and not leaving any litter.
“We'd like to also remind dog owners and dog walkers there are public space protection orders (PSPOs) in place relating to dogs on our beaches.
“Keeping our borough clean is important to all of us, so please be aware enforcement officers will be patrolling the areas and issuing fixed penalty notices (FPNs) to anyone leaving litter or failing to comply with the dog-related PSPOs.”
