Dacorum Borough Council are currently consulting on a proposed Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for the whole of Dacorum.

They’re working with partners to continue to develop safe and healthy communities where everyone feels safe and free from anti-social behaviour.

In summary, it’s proposed that:

  • Dogs are prohibited from enclosed children’s play areas
  • Dogs must be put on a lead if requested by an authorised officer
  • All dog faeces should be removed
  • A person in charge of a dog should have appropriate means with them to remove dog faeces from the land.
