MHDC Consultation on Dog Control PSPO

Malvern Hills District Council wants to hear your views about its proposed Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) pursuant to dog control.

The council continues to receive reports in relation to dog fouling and would like to extend the PSPO that was previously in place to address these issues. If approved, the PSPO will allow the council to deal with dog control offences by issuing fixed penalty notices.

The proposed PSPO could make the following an offence:

  • Failure to pick up dog faeces when in control of dog
  • Failure to carry a poop bag or other means to clean up after a dog
  • Failure to keep a dog on a lead in a designated area
  • Failure to exclude dogs from fenced off or enclosed children’s playgrounds..

Please note that the consultation closes on 13 January 2022.
