Background Information: The PSPO for Dog Control is due to expire on 18th October 2020. It was made and came into force on 19th October 2019 to run for a period of 3 years. The current orders have been reviewed and new areas considered for variation and extension. The results of the consultation will be presented along with the revised Public Spaces Protection Order for dog control. The PSPO is not a means of unduly restricting the exercising or recreation of dogs across the city, but to address the irresponsible behaviour of a small minority of dog owners; and to set out a clear standard to which all dog owners are required to follow.
