Closed - Public Spaces Protection Order No 3: dog control (continuation)

Great Yarmouth Borough Council created a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in April 2017 that:

  • brought longstanding dog control measures under the latest legislation
  • updated the rules to reflect the expectations and aspirations of communities

The Order - to help promote responsible dog control at publicly accessible land across the borough - was introduced following a public consultation and input from parish councils and key landowners.

PSPOs last for a maximum period of three years, after which they must be reviewed to ensure they are still required. The current Order is due to end on 30 March 2023.

The Council recently sought the views of the public, including individuals, landowners, parish councils and other organisations, regarding whether or not the Order should be continued for another three years, or removed.

No additional dog control measures were being proposed as part of the consultation. This review is purely on the current PSPO with a view to helping the Council decide whether or not the existing controls should be renewed.

The consultation ran from Monday 24 October 2022 until Sunday 20 November 2022.
