Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) Consultation overview
In 2012 the council carried out the Clean Streets Consultation which considered introducing Dog Control Orders. More than 1,000 people responded and after considering the responses the orders were put in place.
Since Dog Control Orders were put in place, we focused on prevention through raising awareness this included signs regarding the orders, distribution of leaflets and targeting enforcement action on reported hot spot areas.
Now five years on, the current Dog Control Order legislation will expire in October 2017 and we have the option of replacing them with a PSPO under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
Have your say
The survey asks a series of questions about dogs and public spaces. This is your opportunity to let us have any feedback on the previous dog control orders, your views on options for the new order. We also welcome any other feedback you have regarding dog control matters as this may shape any future PSPOs.
The consultation finishes on 1 October 2017.
We are running a series of drop-in events at locations across the district. Staff will be available to answer any questions and support completing the survey.
There will also be copies of all the maps available to view, showing the locations affected by the different restrictions, with the exception of all areas within a 30 miles per hour speed limit.
Please come along and let us know your thoughts.
