Public Consultation on Public Spaces Protection Order for Dog Fouling

South Gloucestershire Council is proposing to use the powers under Section 59 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 to make a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in relation to dog fouling.

It is proposed to extend the land types on which people have to clear up after their dogs so it applies to all land open to the air which the public have access to

We are also consulting on a proposal to give authorised officers the power to require a person in control of a dog to demonstrate that they have the means to clear up after their dog(s).  This is a new power to assist with tackling dog fouling concerns

To have your say on whether we implement this PSPO, please complete this survey by Friday 11th January 2019
