1. Dog control orders
The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 covers offences relating to:
- failing to pick up after your dog
- failing to keep a dog on a lead on roads, pavements, footpaths and designated parks
- allowing a dog within certain designated areas where dogs are excluded, like fenced children's play areas
- not putting/keeping a dog on a lead when directed to do so by an authorised officer
Relevant signs have been placed citywide to inform dog owners. Owners who neglect these duties will be issued with a fixed penalty notice and fined £75. The fines are payable within 14 days of issue, and failure to do so may lead to prosecution with a maximum fine of £1,000.
