Dog Control Public Spaces Survey

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is consulting on whether to continue for another three years a legal order which helps to promote responsible dog ownership at publicly accessible land across the borough.

In April 2017, the council created a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for the borough which brought long-standing dog control measures under the latest legislation and also updated the rules to reflect the expectations and aspirations of communities. All PSPOs last for a maximum period of three years, after which they must be reviewed to ensure they are still required. Unless renewed by full council, the current order will expire on 30 March 2023.

The council is holding a public consultation, from 24 October up to and including 20 November 2022, to ask individuals, landowners, parish council and other organisations whether they would like to continue the existing order for another three years. No additional dog control measures are being proposed as part of the consultation. This review is purely on the PSPO which is currently in place with a view to helping full council decide whether or not the existing controls should be renewed.
