Dorset Council is extending this public consultation by three weeks to make sure people who were unable to obtain a paper version from libraries or the Council offices (due to coronavirus lockdown) can do so. This will help inform the development of the new Dorset-wide Dog-related Public Spaces Protection Order.

The consultation is a chance for people – residents, business owners, organisations and visitors – to have their say on where and when they think there should be restrictions on dogs in public places, including beaches. It also covers topics such as fouling and lead length.

Follow this link to find out how to obtain your paper form from Dorset Council.

The survey also remains open online – follow this link to give your views:
