Dog care and control

Dog care and control

The law allows us to make orders to control dog movements and waste. This means we may make legal orders to:

  • Keep dogs off certain areas (exclusion orders)
  • Keep dogs on a lead when a council officer asks you
  • Keep the number of dogs per person to four
  • Remove dog waste.

Where there is an order, you must follow it. If you do not, we can fine you or take you to court.

There are five orders in Newham, which you can read about below.

Here is list of the streets, play areas, parks and other open spaces.
