Elections Information


We are committed to engaging in effective community consultation, listening to the views and opinions of our residents and making sure we use these to help shape our policies, plans and decisions.

A public consultation is taking place in relation to the introduction of Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO’s)

These are in relation to dog control and cover dog fouling, dogs on leads and areas where dogs are restricted plus two new proposals to restrict the number of dogs walked at any one time and to ensure those who walk their dog have adequate provision to pick up after their dog has fouled.

The consultation is open for 8 weeks and the council is seeking your views on the proposals.

We have prepared a simple questionnaire that you can complete online asking your opinions.
