April 17, 2013 Leave a comment
The consultation, running from 10th April to 10th May, aims to collect peoples views on new Dog Control Orders. Under the new proposals there will be four orders granted to cover Nuneaton and Bedworth:
- Dog fouling – this covers the entire borough and extends the current dog fouling powers
- Dogs on lead under instruction – If an authorised officer tells a dog walker that they must put their pet on a lead then they must
- Dogs must be kept on leads in the following locations: Oaston Road Cemetery, Bucks Hill Cemetery, Attleborough Cemetery, Coventry Road Cemetery, Marston Lane Cemetery, all public roads, pavements and footways and pedestrianised roads within the Borough and any grass verge which is adjacent to the carriageway or footway, sport grounds, fields and pitches when in use for authorised sporting activities
- Dogs are excluded from the following areas: Specified children’s play areas, multi-use games areas, skateparks, BMX tracks and green gyms and the Heart of England Crematorium
If these are adopted dog owners who breach them face a fixed penalty notice of £75 to be paid within 14 days, reduced to £50 if it is paid within 10 days. If the penalty notice is not paid Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council may prosecute the offender in the courts.
