BDC Dog Management Public Space Protection Order 2019


The Council is proposing to introduce new powers to tackle the issue of dog fouling and problematic dog behaviour across the District. The Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem in a particular geographical area that is detrimental to the local communities' quality of life, by imposing conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone. They are designed to ensure the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour. The Council is consulting on whether there is a need for a Dog Management PSPO across the district which would require, amongst other things that people clean up after their dog immediately, that dogs are excluded from certain areas, such as children's play areas, that there is a limit on the amount of dogs one person may have under their control and that any one in charge of a dog should have the means to pick up any faeces. Breaching a PSPO is a criminal offence and enforcement officers can issue a Fixed Penalty Notice if appropriate to do so or recommend commencement of legal proceedings.    

Why are we Consulting

Before you answer the consultation questions we would advise you to view the draft PSPO (see link below).

the consultation will run until 6th October 2019. It is the intention that the consultation responses will help to finalise the wording of the Dog Management PSPO for Bolsover District Council which will be approved and take effect at the end of October.
