Public space protection order: Dogs

After consultation the Council has made a new Public Spaces Protection Order, the Order replaces the old Public Spaces Protection Order which related to dog fouling in the Borough.  The new Order in addition has further provisions to allow action by the police and authorised persons to request that a dog is placed on a lead if it is causing a nuisance.  In addition where signed dogs will not be allowed in enclosed playgrounds and sporting facilities.

 

Additional signs have been placed in various areas throughout the Borough to notify members of the public that the orders are in place.  Individuals who break the prohibitions could receive a £100 penalty or may be liable for prosecution.

 

The order is available to download from the document section on this page.
