Dog fouling and dog control — have your say

Cheshire East are considering introducing a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) across the borough to help tackle dog fouling and dog control more effectively. They say "we know that most dog owners are responsible and we thank them for their continued support in helping to keep our public areas clean".

However the council have a statutory duty to keep land clear of litter and refuse (including dog fouling) and a duty of care for dealing with waste. They must take action against irresponsible individuals who fail to clear up after their dogs on land which is open to the public. Dog mess is highly unpleasant and a hazard to health — particularly to children.

The introduction of a PSPO for the Cheshire East will replace and extend existing dog controls and byelaws. This will allow a consistent approach to dog fouling as well as other dog control requirements to encourage responsible dog ownership and for everyone to enjoy our open and public spaces safely.

The PSPO would introduce two main requirements

  • To ban dog fouling in all public places
  • To allow authorised officers to tell a dog owner/walker to put and keep their dog on a lead if necessary, for example, if their dog was showing aggressive behaviour.

CE are asking for your views on the proposed PSPO for dog fouling and dog control across Cheshire East and have now launched a public consultation which will run up until 12 noon on 10th October 2017
