Public Spaces Protection Order 2020-23 - Survey

In 2016, as part of a consultation process,  the Council of the Isles of Scilly conducted a comprehensive survey for residents, businesses and visitors, with the aim of collating opinions and input for the purpose of a introducing a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO). This resulted in a PSPO which was set in place under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 for a period of 3 years.

We have now launched a new survey which seeks to validate the effectiveness of the current order not only as a deterrent to irresponsible dog control and dog fouling, but also as a clear guide for dog owners both resident and visiting. The response to this survey will form part of the consultation in determining the necessity and the content for the revised PSPO 2020-2023. The views of our residents, businesses and visitors are important to the council and we request that you please take a moment to complete this short survey by either of the following methods.
