Move to ban feeding seagulls in West Dorset

PUBLISHED: 15:00 02 January 2017 | UPDATED: 09:00 05 January 2017


Public consultations relating to anti-social behaviour have been launched by West Dorset District Council.

The authority is considering implementing Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in relation to anti-social drinking, aggressive begging and the feeding of gulls in specific areas.

In addition, it will be consulting on a dog-related PSPO and is asking residents’ opinions on a number of options. Both consultations will run until 5pm on Wednesday, March 15.

Following the consultation, reports will be produced for the overview and scrutiny committee in mid 2017, which will then make recommendations to the district council’s executive committee.
