Dog Management PSPO

The Dog Management Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) introduces measures to help enforce responsible dog ownership in public spaces across the North East Derbyshire District.

The district wide PSPO makes it an offence in NEDDC to;

  • allow a dog to foul without picking it up
  • not have the means to pick up
  • fail to put a dog on a lead when asked to do so by an authorised officer (for example, by a council officer or Derbyshire Constabulary)
  • have more than 6 dogs in your control
  • allow dogs in designated play areas, multi-use games areas, skate parks and gym equipment areas
  • allow dogs to be off leads whilst on roads, pavements, footways, pedestrianised areas, cemeteries and churchyard
