We asked

Fareham Borough Council is keen to encourage and promote responsible dog ownership within the Borough and would like to hear residents’ views on whether to continue to put in place a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO).

While most dog owners act considerately, a small number do not always do so and complaints about dog fouling and nuisance behaviour are regularly made to the Council.

The current Public Spaces Protection Order is due to expire in 2022 and we would like to extend its powers by a further three years.

To let us know your comments please take part in the survey above before the 25th March 2022.
