Westmorland and Furness could face new dog controls

Westmorland and Furness Council, in Cumbria, has launched a consultation asking for input for a new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), which covers dog control and fouling.

The council is proposing a new order for the Westmorland and Furness area following local government reorganisation last year.

Councillor Judith Derbyshire, Cabinet Member for Housing and Customer Services, said: “This PSPO is aimed at making Westmorland and Furness a safer and more pleasant place to live, work and visit.

“As a council we are well placed to handle concerns around anti-social behaviour and PSPOs allow us to safeguard our communities whilst upholding the quality of our public spaces.”

The consultation, which can be completed here, will close on 1 September.
