The PSPOs differ from the existing dogs on leads and dog exclusion bye-laws as they will allow for the issuing of a fixed penalty notice to the value of £100, reduced to £50 if paid within seven days.

Plans include borough-wide PSPOs which require dogs to be kept on leads on all public highways and other locations, exclude them at various locations, including children’s playgrounds.
