Maldon Council’s asking for views on new regulations regarding dog controls.
The authority’s aiming to amend rules.
· Maintaining the current District-wide PSPO which makes it an offence not to pick up after a dog.
· Provide authorised Officers the power to request that individual dogs are kept on a lead if their behaviour is having or is likely to have a detrimental effect on the local community, or
· Making it an offence for any dog to be off its lead in specific areas, including our parks and cemeteries
· The creation of dog free zones which reinforce the current dog exclusion areas in children’s play sites and extends to cover enclosed sports pitches, such as tennis courts, bowls lawns, etc
