Ashfield District Council will approve the bans later this month

Ashfield District council’s cabinet has been asked to approve  plans for new dog exclusion areas in children’s play areas.

The move is set to be part of draft plans to extend and vary existing public space protection orders (PSPOs), which must be renewed by October this year.

Councillors will also decide whether to extend a ban on car cruising which is in force around Junction 27 of the M1.

Cabinet members will discuss a recommendation to extend and vary a public Space Protection Order (PSPO) which came into effect in October 2015.

The changes are due to be recommended at a meeting of the authority’s cabinet on Thursday June 14.

The report recommends authority for the director of place and communities to carry out the necessary consultation of the proposed extension and variation of the existing PSPO, which is due to expire on September 30.

The second recommendation is to carry out evidence gathering on car cruising in areas of the district not covered by the existing PSPO around Junction 27 of the M1 and immediate vicinity; and consultation on a variation of the existing PSPO.

The existing PSPO enables the Council to take preventive or enforcement action in public places on: Alcohol consumption in a designated area; urinating/defecating within a designated area, dog fouling in specified areas, failing to produce device or other means or removing dog faeces on demand; dog exclusion in specified areas; dogs on lead in specified areas; dogs on lead by direction; dogs (specified maximum amount).
