After extended discussions at three different committees of the Council, the Public Space Protection Order (in relation to dogs) has finally been agreed.
As from 1st April 2016 there will be:
  1. Enhanced powers to enforce dog fouling regulations, right across the District.
  2. Dogs must be kept on leads in the open air eating area at the café in the Aquadrome.
  3. Dogs must be put on their lead if directed to do so by an authorized officer.
  4. Dogs to be excluded from play areas, fenced picnic areas, skate parks and the field used for grazing sheep on Chorleywood House Estate, but only when the sheep are present.
  5. The number of dogs walked by any one person is restricted to 4.
