Public Spaces Protection Orders Survey
In October 2017 the Council introduced a number of Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO) relating to responsible dog ownership across the district. The legislation allows PSPO’s to remain in place for 3 years and there is a requirement to review the orders before renewing them. Here is a link for residents to access and contribute to the online survey, we welcome your input and thank you in advance for taking part in the survey: Take Survey.
