Dog control Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO)

Dog control Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO)

We want everyone to be able to enjoy our public spaces, and sometimes that means having rules to make sure that can happen.

We've brought in restrictions in some of the parks and open spaces around Chesterfield to govern where dogs can go and when they should be kept on leads. This will help us tackle dog fouling and nuisance dog behaviour problems.

Responsible owners know that their dogs should be kept away from children's play areas, or kept on leads in certain places, and our new dog control PSPO (public spaces protection order) shows clearly where that should happen. 

Some of the PSPO areas replace dog control orders that were already in force, and some are completely new. In 2016 we consulted our residents about our PSPO plans before finalising them, find out more here

We have publicised where the PSPO is in force, and if you ignore the PSPO you can be fined. You can see areas affected by the dog control PSPO on our interactive map here, or see details below.

Use our interactive map to find parks and open spaces near you that are covered by the dog control PSPO.
