Consultation on dogs in public spaces
Dorset Council is carrying out a public consultation on rules about dogs in public spaces This will help with the development of the new Dorset-wide Dog-related Public Spaces Protection Order and has been extended 3 weeks due to the Coronavirus pandemic
This survey closed on 12 May 2020. Thank you for your views.
Once results are available they will be published here.
The consultation is a chance for people – residents, business owners, organisations and visitors - to have their say on where and when they think there should be restrictions on dogs in public places, including beaches. It will also cover topics such as fouling and lead length.
These Orders are to make sure that everyone – with or without dogs – can safely enjoy public spaces. Dorset Council want to hear a wide range of views from as many people as possible. We know that people hold very strong views on the topic and we aim to reflect a balanced and fair perspective within the new Order.
