Consultation on proposed renewal of dog control powers (Redcar & Cleveland public spaces protection order 2016)
This consultation closed on Wednesday 26 June 2019.
The council sought views on its proposal to renew or extend the existing dog control powers in force within the borough for another three years (until 30 June 2022).
In total, 422 survey responses (including 28 from charities and organisations active in the borough) were received. Seven organisations and three members of the public, one of whom was a member of the Redcar & Cleveland access group, responded by email to the consultation.
Overall, feedback from the consultation demonstrates the council has overwhelming support for its proposal to extend its dog control PSPO powers for another three years. Indeed support for the council's proposed approach has, in general, increased since the Redcar & Cleveland PSPO 2016 was introduced. The results of the consultation exercise are summarised below:
|Offence||% supporting continuation (Vs 2016 consultation)|
|To fail to pick up after their dog||97.83 (98.18)|
|To permit their dog to enter areas of Redcar and Saltburn beaches between 1 May and 30 September||78.37 (70.75)|
|To permit their dog to enter any of the Council's nine cemeteries||77.78 (75.24)|
|To permit their dog to enter a fenced-off children's play area||95.66 (79.74)|
|To fail to have the means to pick up after a dog||96.35 (87.20)|
Concerning consultees' experience of dog control related issues:
- 66.11% said they had experienced issues around dog control issues within the borough in the last 12 months
The top five dog control issues reported by consultees were as follows:
- 80.83% said “dog fouling";
- 34.50% said “dog running out of control";
- 23.96% said “dog attack on another dog, pet animal, wild animal or wild bird";
- 20.45% said they were “threatened by a dog's behaviour;
- 17.89% said “dogs on beaches" during operation of exclusion.
Accordingly the council has now exercised its powers, under section 60 of the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing (2014) Act, to extend the Redcar & Cleveland public spaces protection order 2016 for a further three years – until 30 June 2022 – in order to tackle dog fouling and other forms of irresponsible dog ownership.

Eston Park Academy Consultation
This consultation ended on 6 August 2018
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council will commence a 6 week public consultation exercise on 25 June 2018 in relation to land at the site of the former Eston Park Academy.
The Council propose to lift the restrictive covenants for educational use with a view to dispose of and redevelop the former school land and associated playing fields. The Council has to apply to the Department for Education for consent to do this under Section 77 of the School Standards and Frameworks Act 1998 and Schedule 1 of the Academies Act 2010.
The application site consists of 41,862m2 of land defined as Playing Field land under Section 77 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. The Academy sponsor, the Academies Enterprise Trust, has Secretary of State approval to surrender to the Council part of its lease consisting this application area.
The consultation will last for 6 weeks and anyone who wishes to make comments regarding this proposal should do so via SchoolsConsultation@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk
or in writing to the Council within six weeks of the date of the commencement of the consultation, being 25 June 2018. It is important to remember the consultation is in relation to the proposal above, rather than any subsequent use, which would be dealt with through the planning process.
A plan of the area under consultation for disposal, some frequently asked questions and a copy of the relevant planning documents can be viewed at Inspire to Learn, South Bank, Normanby Rd, Middlesbrough TS6 9AE.
Please note that under Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985, your written comments will constitute a document which is available for any member of the public to see on demand. An analysis of the comments received will be forwarded to Secretary of State as part of the Councils application to consent for the disposal.
Proposed extension to the Dog Exclusion Zone at Saltburn Beach
This consultation closed on Monday 21 August 2017
The council sought views on the proposed extension to the dog exclusion zone at Saltburn beach.
The council received 423 completed survey questionnaires. Whilst many respondents told us about dog related antisocial behaviour at Saltburn beach, the majority (53.55%) did not support the proposed extension. Just over four-in-ten (42.42%) supported the councils proposal.
Accordingly the council will not be varying the Redcar and Cleveland Public Spaces Protection Order 2016 to extend the dogs on beaches exclusion zone at Saltburn beach in the immediate future.
The council will review the position ahead of it renewing the existing dogs Public Spaces Protection Order, which expires 30 June 2019.
The council will consult on any proposals to retain or amend the existing controls on dogs and dog walkers' use of public spaces within the borough, including any proposal to introduce additional controls, before it renews the existing order.
