Overview

The Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 came into force in October 2014. The Act made changes to the powers available to local authorities and their partners in tackling antisocial behaviour.

The Act introduced Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) as a new power. PSPOs allow local authorities to restrict a wide range of negative behaviours that may have a detrimental effect on people in public spaces.

CHARNWOOD BOROUGH COUNCIL
NOTICE OF INTENTION TO VARY A PUBLIC SPACES PROTECTION ORDER (‘PSPO’) DOG CONTROL – BRADGATE PARK AND SWITHLAND WOOD

Notice is hereby given that Charnwood Borough Council (‘the Council’) proposes for the purposes of reducing anti-social behaviour in relation to dog control to vary the existing PSPO under Section 61(1b) of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 and of all other enabling powers.

The Council would like to seek your views to vary the existing order. This Notice outlines the details of the proposed variation to the PSPO. Any comments and/or objections should be sent in writing or by email to the
correspondence address below.

Current condition in PSPO:
Insisting all dogs are kept on leads in areas of the park shown in yellow on the Plan (Seasonal between Good Friday or 1st April (whichever is sooner) and October 31st and between 9am and 10pm.

Proposed variation:
Insisting all dogs are kept on leads in areas of the park shown in yellow on the Plan between 9am and 10pm

In summary: The seasonal restriction will be removed and it will become all year round.

At the closure of the formal consultation period, the Council will review all comments/objections and will make a decision on whether to vary the order or an alternative in part or in full.

The PSPO will continue to address anti-social behaviour issues relating to dog control across the estate of Bradgate Park and Swithland Wood.


The majority of dog owners are responsible and display effective dog control but there are some occasions where additional controls are necessary for clarity to ensure all people in controls of dogs are acting responsibly.

This Order applies to the public places described in the Schedule to this Order (“the restricted area”)
