Have your say on responsible dog ownership in Fareham

Fareham residents have until Monday 14 January to have their say on plans to introduce a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) to encourage responsible dog ownership within the Borough.

If approved this would replace an existing PSPO introduced in 2016 to tackle dog fouling as this is set to expire in March 2019.

Putting in place a PSPO would extend the Council's powers for a period of three years to:

The proposed PSPO would also enable Council officers to issue a fixed penalty notice (on the spot fine) to irresponsible dog owners. None of the proposed powers and restrictions would apply to people who are registered blind, or who rely on assistance dogs.

Residents can comment on the survey here: www.fareham.gov.uk/takingthelead. Hard copies of the survey can be requested by email or phone or collected at the Civic Offices. There is also a static exhibition by Debenhams in Fareham Shopping Centre where residents can read the proposals.

Executive Member for Health and Public Protection, Cllr Trevor Cartwright, said: "It is important that residents have their say on how we can encourage responsible dog ownership so that our public spaces can be enjoyed by both Fareham residents and visitors.”
