Lavant Parish Council


21st Jul 2020 - Dog Control Rules in Public Spaces - have your say!

There is an opportunity to give your views on dog control rules in public spaces within the Chichester District as part of a new public consultation.


As a council, CDC are currently reviewing the dog control rules that apply to public spaces within the Chichester District. Rules around dog fouling, dog exclusion areas, and areas in which a dog must be put on a lead when directed, are all outlined in a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO). This is in place to help ensure everyone can enjoy our beautiful open spaces and beaches, and to help protect wildlife. We are proposing that the current Public Space Protection Order, which is due to end in October this year, continue for a further three years with a few minor changes.


You can find more information about the consultation on the CDC Let's Talk: Dogs in Public Spaces page, where you can also find Frequently Asked Questions providing background details associated with some of the questions, plus details of what is being proposed and how this differs slightly to the current rules.
