Dog control public space protection order consultation

We introduced a public space protection order covering where and how dogs can be exercised in the borough in 2018. 

We are seeking the views of our residents, partners and stakeholders on the changes to our dog control public space protection order.  If you have any comments or suggestions on the order, please complete the questionnaire using the link below by Sunday 14th October 2018

We are giving you the chance to comment and help shape the final order.  The intention is for the bulk of the current order to remain in place, subject to the results from this consultation exercise on the specific areas identified.

The consultation will include, through email invitations and hard copy questionnaires, the following groups/individuals:

  • Veterinary practices in the borough
  • Animal welfare charities
  • Professional dog walkers and trainers
  • Residents and business panel members
  • Borough councillors
  • Town and parish councils - for circulation to their members
  • Voluntary groups, including disability action groups.
  • Statutory consultees – North Yorkshire Police, North Yorkshire County Council, North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner.

The consultation will be actively promoted via our website and social media.
