New measures proposed in the Daventry and South areas of West Northamptonshire to encourage responsible dog ownership and stopping smoking in certain public open spaces will be considered at West Northamptonshire Council's (WNC) Cabinet meeting at 6pm on 11 October.
Members of the public were invited to take part in a consultation which closed on Monday 4th April 2022.
This item from consideration was rescheduled from a previous Cabinet meeting. More »
West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) is considering whether to make a new Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) to promote:
Responsible dog ownership
prohibit smoking in certain public spaces
Any Public Spaces Protection Orders would cover the former administrative council areas of Daventry District and South Northants.
A PSPO allows councils to impose restrictions on the use of specific areas. A PSPO can deal with persistent and unreasonable nuisances and anti-social behaviour that has a detrimental effect on the quality of life for the local community in a particular area. They intend to help ensure that the public can use and enjoy public spaces and can help to make West Northamptonshire a better and safer place to live.
Under the proposed Public Spaces Protection Order dog owners could be fined £100 if they fail to:
- pick up their dog's mess and dispose of it properly
- carry the means to pick up after their dog
- prevent their dog from entering public places from which dogs are excluded, such as play areas, schools and some leisure facilities
- keep their dog on a lead when required to do so, such as in cemeteries, car parks and outside schools on school days
- put their dog on a lead when asked to do so by an authorised officer
Other proposals include limiting the number of dogs that anyone can walk at one time to four, and prohibiting people from smoking in children's play areas, skateparks, and certain other leisure settings. » Less

Cllr David Smith, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Engagement, and Regulatory Services says:
People are being asked for their views on a new proposed table of fares for Hackney carriages, after our Council answered drivers' calls for an increase. As members will be aware, Cabinet members discussed the matter at their meeting in September, when they supported proposals for a single table of fares to cover West Northants. More »
