  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.
