Public Space Protection Order Consultation

The Amber Valley Borough Council is consulting on a proposal to declare a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) across Amber Valley to introduce the following restrictions.

Prohibition 1 a person in charge of a dog to pick up and remove dog fouling within public areas in the borough.

Prohibition 2 a person in charge of a dog, if challenged by an authorised officer, must have the means on them to pick up dog waste (i.e. a dog waste bag).

Prohibition 3 dogs within specified cemeteries must be kept on a lead.

Prohibition 4 dogs are not allowed to be taken into or be permitted to enter or remain in specified children's play areas.

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 requires that the council consults with the Chief Officer of Police, the local policing body, landowners (where practicable) and whatever community representative the council thinks it appropriate to consult.

If you wish to respond to the consultation it may be accessed on our website at Consultation (

The consultation closes on the 14 November 2022.
