Dog control regulations extended

Posted: Sun, 08 Dec 2019 10:24 by Lynn Cosgrove

An order aimed at tackling irresponsible dog owners in Harborough District will continue for at least another three years, following a public consultation.

Harborough District Council introduced the Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) on Dog Controls in June 2016. More »

The Order makes it an offence to fail to:

  • Remove dog faeces (includes all land to which the public can gain access)
  • Put a dog on a lead when directed to do so by an authorised officer
  • Have an appropriate means to pick up dog faeces, such as dog bags

Any breach of the order could result in the issuing of a £100 fixed penalty notice or being taken to court and receiving a fine or conviction of up to £1,000.

Following a six-week consultation, which received over 250 responses, Harborough District Council' Cabinet agreed on 2 December 2019 to extend the PSPO to reflect the views of the majority of residents consulted who agreed the PSPO should be extended.

A Council Spokesperson said: "The Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) provides a consistent approach when dealing with issues such as dog fouling, and will help us to tackle irresponsible dog owners so that our parks and open spaces are clean and safe to use."
