The council is consulting on controls over dogs. The draft scheme specifies where dogs must be on a lead , areas dogs are not allowed, out of control dogs, picking up dog mess and number of dogs per dog walker.
Check the draft scheme to see if your local park or play space is covered: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/have-your-say-dog-control-lambeth There will be a dedicated Parks Enforcement Team. Once the scheme is formalised as a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) police officers can also issue fixed penalty notices.
The closing date for consultation on the scheme is Sunday 26th March .
