The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
CWaC: February 2018
Residents are being invited to have their say on Cheshire West and Chester Council's proposals to tackle irresponsible dog owners.
The Council recognises that the vast majority of dog owners are responsible and keep their dogs under control while they are out. For animal welfare reasons it is also beneficial for dog owners to be able to exercise their dogs off lead in open spaces.
However, if they are not properly supervised and kept under control, dogs that are allowed off a lead in public areas can cause nuisance or even injury to members of the public, or other animals, and may cause road traffic accidents.
A public consultation on proposals for a Public Space Protection Order which includes various dog control measures has begun. The proposals aim to strike a balance, recognising that most people are responsible dog owners, while making provision for controls where they may be necessary.
There are a variety of ways to give your views and the consultation will close on 28 April 2018.
