Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO's) – dogs

Extension of the Dog Control Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) - consultation

Under legislation the current order will expire in October 2020, so the Council is looking to extend the Order for a further 3 years. As part of this process we must consult a number of interested parties, as well as the wider public of Wyre.

How do I take part in the consultation?

This consultation is now open until 18 August 2020 and we would like to hear any comments you have on any of the order elements by completing the online survey. If you wish to suggest changes you must provide supporting information which includes a description of existing problems and evidence of significant community support for the proposal. 

Paper copies will be made available on request – and must be returned by midday 17 August to the Civic Centre.

You can download a copy of the current PSPO here. Exemptions apply for assistance dogs and assistance dogs in training and for people with certain disabilities as detailed in the order.

Following numerous complaints of dogs out of control on Fleetwood Marsh Nature Park, Jameson Road and due to the negative effect on wildlife, Lancashire County Council have requested the application of dog controls on the park, similar to those applied in other open spaces – please refer to question 8 (a-e) and the associated maps.
