Parish Council - Dog Control Order

Steeple Morden Parish Council has placed the following Dog Control Orders on its land in Steeple Morden (the recreation ground, the cowslip or conservation meadow, and the land adjacent to Woodland Grange). A map is available here - Parish Land Map

Order 1 - Dogs are banned from the children's playground, the bowls green and the tennis courts.

Order 2 - It is the responsibility of the handler of any dog going onto Parish Council land to remove any faeces produced by the dog, either by placing the faeces suitably wrapped in one of the dog bins provided, or by taking the faeces home for disposal.

Order 3 - No person shall take onto Parish Council land more than three dogs at any one time.

Anyone found to be breaking a Dog Control Order is liable to a maximum fine of £1000.

Dog walkers are reminded that elsewhere in the Village the District Council has powers, under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996, to prosecute those who do not clear up after their dog.
