Kingsley Village
in the heart of Cheshire

The Council has received a number of complaints over the last few months regarding dogs approaching children on the playing field and this has prompted us to investigate a number of potential solutions.  During our research, it has come to our attention that a number of byelaws are already in place on the playing field in relation to dog control.  Dogs are banned from the enclosed children's play area and we will shortly be erecting signs in this respect. 

We have also learnt that Vale Royal Borough Council created a byelaw in relation to dogs being kept on leads on the rest of the field.  Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council took on these orders from the old Vale Royal Borough Council and in the next 12 months, they may decide to introduce Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO's) on the field which would enable them to legally enforce these byelaws. 

Before this takes place, the Parish Council intends to carry out a consultation in relation to dog control on the playing field so we can fully represent the views of the community in any PSPO consultation carried out by CW&C. 

In the meantime, we would politely ask all dog owners to please make sure their dogs are under control and not liable to run up to other members of the public, which can be scary, especially for children.
