We are proposing to extend the existing Torbay wide Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for dog fouling, due to expire in April 2024. The extension would ensure the PSPO remains in place until April 2027. Under the conditions of the PSPO, someone can receive a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) of up to £100 if they fail to pick up after their dog immediately after the dog has fouled on public land. This PSPO is part of a multi-pronged approach recently announced that includes the use of Public Spaces Protection Orders around dog fouling and alcohol consumption.
