A survey over proposed major changes to dog control in Fylde is now live and residents are being invited to have their say.

The consultation will be live until Sunday, January 15 and covers the proposed introduction of Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) for dog control and other potential sources of anti-social behaviour, under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

The PSPOs differ from the existing dogs on leads and dog exclusion bye-laws as they will allow for the issuing of a fixed penalty notice to the value of £100, reduced to £50 if paid within seven days.

Plans include borough-wide PSPOs which require dogs to be kept on leads on all public highways and other locations, exclude them at various locations, including children’s playgrounds.
