New proposals on controlling dogs in public spaces

Hackney Council currently has a Dog Control Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in place. The purpose of this PSPO is to deal with issues that arise as a result of people failing to exercise proper control of dogs in public places. The current PSPO is due to expire on 17 March 2024 and can be viewed at: 

The Council are proposing to extend the PSPO for a further three years, and vary the PSPO by:

  • adding to the prohibitions / requirements stipulated in the PSPO,
  • updating the list of locations from which dogs are excluded, and
  • updating the list of locations in which dogs must be kept on a lead.
