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 will expire 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.
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.
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.
