Wealden District Council

Introduction of a Public Spaces Protection Order

News : 06 September 2017

Wealden District Council’s current Dog Control Order, The Fouling of Land by Dogs Order 2013, is coming to an end shortly.

Poop scoop

The Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 provides the Council with powers to replace the 2013 Order with a Public Spaces Protection Order.

The Council is therefore proposing to make a Public Spaces Protection Order covering the public land across Wealden.

The requirements of the Order are the same as those in place currently. The signage, penalties and methods of dealing with the issue of dog fouling will not require alteration.

If you wish to make a representation about the proposal, please complete the questionnaire available on our Consultation webpages.

Alternatively, you may submit a paper copy of the questionnaire to:-
Street Scene Team,
Wealden District Council,
Vicarage Lane,
Hailsham,
East Sussex,
BN27 2AX

If you have any queries in reference to this consultation, then please contact the Council at: pspo2017@wealden.gov.uk or 01892 602735.

The consultation will run from 8 September 2017 and end on 6 October 2017.
