The detailed consultation documents are available for download below:

Your comments should reach us by no later than midnight on Friday 21nd December 2018.

All consultation responses will be given due consideration by the Council before any orders are made. The final decision will rest with the Suffolk Coastal District Council and will be scheduled for consideration at a Cabinet meeting after the closure of the consultation period.

Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) – Dog Controls

We have amended the various dog controls currently in force across the district.

In the case of Landguard Point nature Reserve, these controls also extend to other activities.

As well as updating controls, PSPOs also provide a more effective and efficient way of dealing with these types of offence through the issue of a Fixed Penalty Notice.

10 Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) were adopted in April 2016

4 Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) were adopted in January 2018
