Public Spaces Protection Orders

Some public areas in England and Wales, including in East Northamptonshire are covered by Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) - previously called Dog Control Orders (DCOs).  In public areas with PSPOs, you may have to:

- keep your dog on a lead
- put your dog on a lead if told to by a police officer, police-community support officer or someone from the council
- stop your dog going to certain places - like farmland or parts of a park
- limit the number of dogs you have with you (this applies to professional dog walkers too)
- clear up after your dog

PSPOs only apply to public land. 
If you ignore a PSPO, you can be fined.
East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) would like to receive your opinions on the PSPOs currently in force in East Northamptonshire and  the future use of PSPOs.
