Dog Control Orders Notice

 

Following consultation earlier this year, Bedford Borough Council is now introducing an expansion to our dog control orders to cover new areas.

 

The Council uses dog control orders to benefit local communities, neighbourhoods, and the local economy, and help in the creation and maintenance of clean, safe and healthy neighbourhoods, town centres and visitor destinations.

 

Over 160 people responded to the consultation which ran from May to July 2017, with the majority agreeing with proposed orders excluding dogs from the play areas listed within the consultation and to keep dogs on leads in certain areas, also listed within the consultation. The consultation can be viewed at www.bedford.gov.uk/consultations

 

The Council aims to promote responsible dog ownership and reduce complaints for dog issues such as dog fouling. This allows the public and especially children access to dog-free or dog-controlled areas intended for recreational purposes to improve health and well-being, making Bedford a safe and enjoyable place to live.

 

The proposed order is available to view, in two parts, at www.bedford.gov.uk/council_and_democracy/consultations/dog_control_orders_2017.aspx and is set to come into effect on Wednesday 22nd November.
