Residents, visitors and organisations in North Dorset are invited to give their opinions about rules concerning dogs.
What do you think about dogs in public places – like parks – and also when they should be on a lead.
After considering people’s views, North Dorset District Council will produce a new dog-related Public Spaces Protection Order. Councillor Andrew Kerby, Community Safety and Wellbeing Portfolio Holder at the council, said: “We would like to hear your views on how dogs should be managed in public places in North Dorset. We will try to strike a balance to suit the interests of all.
“I would like to urge everyone, dog owners and non-dog owners, to complete the survey online, it is very easy and only takes about five minutes. Your views count, so please do have a say.
Paper copies are available in North Dorset libraries and the district council’s Nordon office.
The district council has to consult on current dog related orders and proposed changes under the new Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 every three years to ensure the public’s views are considered.
The survey began on December 1 and runs until March 2.
