Public Spaces Protection Order Dog Fouling 2022
Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, section 59
On 14 January 2022, after a positive public consultation with 95% of the respondents in support, the East Cambridgeshire District Council Public Space Protection Order Dog Fouling 2022 came into effect. The PSPO is valid for three years, after which it will reviewed and potentially extended. The Order makes it an offence to allow a dog to foul on public land and not clear up after it.
A breach of the Order is a criminal offence and will result in a fixed penalty notice of £80.00, or upon summary conviction, a fine of £1000.
