  3. Dogs Legislation and Powers

    For a long time the Council has had byelaws in place to take enforcement action in various parts of the Borough namely the parks and open spaces. Since the introduction of the Clean Neighbourhood and Environment Act (2005) from April 2006 the local authority (primary authority) and parish councils (secondary authority) have had the power to introduce dog control orders.

  4. Dogs Legislation and Powers

    Below is an explanation of each of the dog control orders.

  5. Penalty charge notices

    Penalty charge notices (PCNs) are issued for parking offenses on car parks that we own or manage. 

  6. Challenge a Penalty Charge Notice

    This page outlines how to challenge a Penalty Charge Notice you have received.

  7. Dog nuisance

    In general, people are allowed to keep animals, as long as they do not cause a nuisance or a health hazard to other people and premises around them.

    This page outlines what can be done when this is not the case.

  8. Dog Fouling - Enforcement Services

    Dog fouling can be an unpleasant problem, and is one which we know angers many of our residents. We do our bit to clamp down on the problem.

  9. Dog related orders and relevant documents

    Legislation is designed to simplify the current arrangements for controlling dogs. The dog control order will specify the land to which the order relates as well as the times during which the order will apply. In practice, this means that an authority can designate any area of land open to the air to which the public has access (including any such land within its boundary) as being land on which specified dog offences will apply. You can see these areas clearly marked on the maps associated with the Dog Control Orders.
