Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) Consultation overview
In 2012 we carried out the Clean Streets Consultation which had more than 1,000 responses resulting in the introduction of Dog Control Orders.
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 expired in October 2017 and we have the option of replacing them with a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
The survey closed on 1 October and we are currently considering the feedback received.
What happens next
The results of the consultation will be used to decide on the content of the PSPO. They will form the report to our councillors in November 2017 for the approval to go forward.
The results of the consultation will also be put on our website and in South Lakeland News.
