Newark and Sherwood Dog Control Orders

Public Space Protection Orders Consultation for Dog Control

Newark and Sherwood District Council are reviewing the success of the restrictions put in place under our Dog Control Orders as part of the introduction of Public Space Protection Orders later this year.

We also invite your views on a proposed exemption scheme and the introduction of a “ dogs on lead by direction” power. To see the full consultation document see below.

The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 allows us to set up Dog Control Orders within our district. We have made a number of orders which affect certain land to which the public are entitled to have access (with or without payment).

The following offences, punishable by a fine not exceeding level three on the standard scale, are created by the orders:

  • Failing to immediately remove dog faeces from land
  • Not putting, and keeping, a dog on a lead when directed to do so by an authorised officer
  • Taking more than a specified number (6) of dogs onto land
  • Not keeping a dog on a lead
  • Permitting a dog to enter land from which dogs are excluded
