RESIDENTS are being asked whether a council clampdown on dog fouling and the control of dogs should be extended by three years.

Cheshire East Council is currently consulting on plans to extend a borough-wide Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) on dogs which came into effect in November 2017.

The order means dog owners can be fined up to £1,000 for failing to pick up after their pets in a public place, or if a dog which is causing a nuisance is not kept on a lead.

A separate order could also be extended for The Carrs, in Wilmslow, to control dogs off leads and limit the number of dogs walked through the park.

Cllr Mick Warren, CEC cabinet member for communities, said: "Dog fouling is one of the biggest concerns that our residents have and the council will continue to crack down on irresponsible dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets and owners who fail to control their dogs in public places."
