Public Spaces Protection Order (North Northamptonshire Council) (Dog Control) Order 2023

Closed 28 Sep 2023

Opened 31 Aug 2023


North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) has recently consulted on a local authority wide Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for Dog Control to ensure consistency across the area, harmonise existing orders and continue to address dog related anti-social behaviour. Legacy orders in Kettering, Wellingborough and East Northants are due to expire in November 2023, with no order currently in place for Corby.

The results of the consultation which ran from 22 June 2023 until midnight on 3 August 2023 informed the development of the following draft PSPO:

Public Spaces Protection Order (North Northamptonshire Council) (Dog Control) Order 2023

The PSPO covers the following:

  • Dogs fouling on land
  • Dogs on leads in certain identified areas of public land
  • Dogs on lead upon request
  • Dog exclusion in certain areas of public land

An order has not been made to restrict the number of dogs that can be taken onto land.
