Dog fouling consultation begins

CONSULTATION has opened on a borough-wide public space protection order to deal with dog fouling.

Views are also sought on renewing the order for Rotherham town centre, which is due to expire.

Cllr Emma Hoddinott, RMBC cabinet member for community safety, said: “While incidents of anti-social behaviour in the town centre and complaints of dog fouling across the borough have been declining since 2016, they are still some of the most common causes for complaint.”

PSPOs give council staff and police more powers to address issues of concern. There were 168 fines for breaching the town centre order in the past three years.
