Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs)

The borough of Telford and Wrekin Dog Control Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) 2021

Telford & Wrekin Council is proposing to have a borough wide PSPO to prevent, manage and tackle recurring dog fouling issues and inadequate control by some dog walkers. Once established the proposed PSPO will enable authorised Council Officers, Constables and Police Community Support Offices to request a number of actions to be undertaken by the dog walker/owner and to take enforcement action where necessary through use of the power to issue Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs).

In order to ensure a consistent standard throughout, it is intended that the PSPO would apply to all public spaces within the borough.
