Stop Press: I’ve just heard (3rd March) that Sefton Council has ceased this consultation due to the health crisis.
Consultation on the ideas about a Public Space Protection Order – Dog Control (PSPO).
The link above is to a document produced by Sefton Council on this subject. The link at the end of this posting enables you to take part in the consultation.
The consultation runs from 15th February till 1st April 2017.
Dog control is a serious issue but like many things in life it is the activities of the minority that cause those in power to consider moves that in this case will clearly restrict the activities of the many considerate dog owners.
I don’t have a dog myself so have no axe to grind here (although fouling of pavements and public open spaces drives me as mad as the next person) but having become aware of this consultation only recently I thought it was something that required wider sight amongst Sefton Borough residents.
My thanks to Roy Connell for the lead to this posting.
PS. Is it me or is the Sefton Council document in the link above just a little patronising?
