A protection order introduced by Three Rivers District Council to control dogs in public spaces is open to consultation to extend the order.
First introduced in April 2016, the order enforces restrictions relating to dogs. Owners must be considerate of those around them and to stop incidents such as dog fouling or causing a nuisance or annoyance to the public.
Dogs are also excluded from all children’s play areas, outdoor gyms, courts, skate areas
and all fenced off picnic areas throughout the district.
The protection order expires in April 2019 and the council is now consulting with the public on extending the order.
A person who is guilty of an offence under this order will be liable to a £75.00 fixed penalty notice or receive a fine of up to £1,000 by the courts.
The survey will close at 12pm on January 7. To have your say visit www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TRDCDogcontrolextension
