Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) - Dogs

Enforcement

As the offences would be breaches of a public space protection order, the council may issue a fixed penalty notice in order to provide an alternative to receiving a conviction for the offence. The council has set the fine at £100, in order to maximise the deterrent risk for offenders.

In all cases, the council will seek to identify dogs/owners reportedly behaving irresponsibly and if deemed necessary will seek (and have) to put in place acceptable behaviour contracts and community protection notices on a one-to-one basis.
