Consultation - Dogs in public places - Chichester District Council

Chichester District Council has just launched a new consultation - Let's Talk: Dogs in Public Spaces

It will run until 14 August 2020.

Chichester District Council is 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 the many beautiful open spaces and beaches we have in the district 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.

As part of this work, and to ensure everyone has the opportunity to share their views on the proposals, the District Council has launched a public consultation. People can find out lots of information about the consultation, including a link to a quick survey so they can have their say, on our consultation web page:

On this page, people can also find a comprehensive Frequently Asked Questions section. This includes: what a Public Space Protection Order is, why it is important, along with details and maps illustrating what is being proposed and how this differs to the current Public Space Protection Order.
