The Public Space Protection Order for Dog Control comes into effect in County Durham from 1st June 2017
From 1st June 2017, it is an offence in County Durham to:
- Allow a dog to foul without picking it up
- Allow a dog to stray - roam loose/wander/exercise without a responsible owner present
- Fail to put a dog on a lead when asked to by an Authorised Officer
- Allow dogs in designated fenced off play areas (i.e. dogs are not allowed in specified areas where slides, swings and/or other climbing equipment are contained by a fence).
If you do not comply with the above, you will be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100 (reduced to £60 if paid within 10 working days) The maximum fine is £1,000.
The Public Space Protection Order for fenced off play sites will be operated within Hackworth Park, Shildon. The smaller children’s fenced off play area will come into effect on 1st June, 2017.
Work is in progress to fence off and gate the larger children’s play area and when completed this area will also be covered by the Order.
Dogs can be securely tied to fences outside of the play areas, provided they do not pose a health and safety risk to other children and members of the public. Any dog foul must be picked up and securely disposed of in a suitable bin.
Alternatively, your dog can be exercised at another time when you are not accessing a fenced off play site.
Fenced off play areas should be safe and welcoming for children and families to enjoy.
