Why your views matter

Eastleigh Borough Council is seeking residents’ and stakeholders’ views on the draft Animal Welfare and Licensing Policy and draft PSPO (Public Space Protection Order) for the control of dog fouling.

The Policy sets out the Councils approach to the administration and enforcement of the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 and enforcement of other animal related issues, reports and complaints received by the Council.

It is important to the Council that the views of local residents and other stakeholders are considered as part of the decision-making process. You are invited to complete this Response Form to give your views on both the Animal Licensing and Welfare Policy and proposed PSPO.

The findings of the consultation will be published and presented to Cabinet later in 2024. Your feedback will help us to shape the Policy and PSPO.
