Proposals for Dog Control Public Space Protection Orders to go before Committee and Cabinet

Proposals for a new Public Space Protection Order dealing with Dog Control are due to go before Conwy County Councillors next week (12 and 16 October).

The Dog Control Orders, which the Council introduced in 2012, became a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) in October 2017. This PSPO is in place until 20 October 2020 when the proposed the new Order would come into force.

The current Order includes:

Dog Exclusion Zones (e.g. beaches, playing fields)

Dog Fouling

Dogs on Leads

Dogs on Leads by Direction

The Council first held a consultation about the proposals in 2018. And a further consultation about amendments to the proposals, including adding and removing some dog exclusion areas and lifting some seasonal exclusions, took place in July this year. Over 150 people took part in the latest consultation.

All the feedback has been taken into account and now the final proposals will go before Councillors on the Economy and Place Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 12 October and then to the Cabinet for a final decision.

Cllr Charlie McCoubrey, Cabinet Member for Cabinet Member for Housing and Regulatory said, “We’d like to thank everyone who took the time to contribute to these consultations. It was important to get the opinions of dog owners and those who don’t have dogs to be able so that we can try to make sure that everyone is able to enjoy public spaces.”
