Dog Control Public Space Protection Order - Consultation

Rate this item
(1 Vote)
Residents have until 22 October to give their views on the current dog control public space protection order.
 
The current PSPO has been in place since 2 January 2021 and is being reviewed as required by the above legislation after three years.
 
Over this period, the Council has generally seen a reduction on the number of calls reporting badly behaved dogs or dog fouling, due to the extra powers that the PSPO confers. The signage around the borough, and in all of the parks and open spaces covered by the PSPO also provides an important deterrent. Without the PSPO, the Council would only have the powers to deal with dog fouling, and no powers to deal with other complaints into behaviour of dogs within the Borough.
 
A summary of the current regulations, which are subject to fines if breached, can be found below:
 
? dogs are not permitted in children's play areas, ball courts, multi games courts, tennis courts etc.
? failing to clear dog faeces
? walking more than four dogs
?‍? failing to keep their dogs on leads by direction
? failing to keep dogs on leads in Council cemeteries, leisure centres and named car parks
? failing to carry suitable means for proper disposal of dog faeces
 
Exemptions are in place for working dogs (e.g. guide dogs) and canines in training.
 
Residents will have until 22 October 2023 to register their views. They can do so online by visiting: https://orlo.uk/pZN1z
