Dog controls

Dog controls are in place in Lyme Regis for the safety and enjoyment of all residents and visitors.

A Dog Related Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) was introduced by the former West Dorset District Council in October 2017 for a period of three years. The order covers Lyme Regis and details when and where dogs should be kept on leads, where dogs are excluded from and at what times, the removal and disposal of dog faeces, and the penalties for those who do not comply with the order.
