Rotherham Council extends dog fouling PSPO

Rotherham Council is to extend its dog fouling pubic spaces protection order (PSPO) for another year. 

The council considered whether to add more parts to the PSPO, including keeping dogs on leads when asked by an authorised officer, keeping dogs on leads when in cemeteries, not taking dogs into children’s play areas, and not carrying suitable means to pick up dog mess. 

However, it was decided that these would be addressed as part of a wider piece of work on enforcement. 

Non-compliance with the order is punishable by a fixed penalty notice of up to £100 or, upon conviction, a fine up to £1,000.
