Public Space Protection Orders

Further to the questions raised, at the parish council meeting on Tuesday 10th July, regarding the Public Space Protection Orders, the parish council has been in contact with NWLDC and they have confirmed the following:

After public consultation in 2017 the old Dog Control Orders came to an end giving way for North West Leicestershire District Council to adopt the Public Space Protection Order which came into force in April 2018. More »

The major change between the dog Control Order (The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005) and the Public Space Protection Order (The Anti Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014) is the Means to pick up.

It was already an offence under the old dog control order to allow a dog to enter or remain in a fence / enclosed children's play area or designated marked sport pitch or athletic area. The reason for this is that dog faeces contains harmful bacterial and the residue left behind even after cleaning up will contain parasites which can cause infections in humans (especially children) . This is contracted directly through the skin or by accidental ingestion which is the reason the exclusion is in place, the reason I advised not to have a temporary marked pitch is because the parasites can stay in the ground for up to a year after.

Excluding dogs from marked pitches reduces the risk to public health which is why the Council carried it forward from the old dog control order to the new PSPO, which is in force throughout North West Leicestershire and there are no mechanisms or options to change this. » Less
