A new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for dog fouling and control has now taken effect across Thanet.
It follows a cabinet meeting which approved the order on Wednesday, October 25.
New signage will be put up over the coming months at all beaches and in popular dog walking areas to inform people of the conditions of the order.
Cllr Fairbrass, cabinet member for community safety and environmental services said: "Dog fouling is unpleasant and unsightly for all Thanet residents and the many visitors to the area.
"This new PSPO has enabled the council to simplify the rules and replace old legislation to help control irresponsible dog owners who don't pick up dog faeces or control their dogs.
"It is another tool that the council has introduced to help keep the area clean and welcoming.
"It also shows that we, as a council are serious about taking action against those people who don't pick up after their dogs."
The order will be in place for three years, and can be read here.
