Public feedback is sought by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) on proposed restrictions affecting such things as dogs, and drinking alcohol in a public place.

NNDC wants to introduce three district-wide restrictions, known as Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO). These would cover:

no dog fouling; any person seen not clearing up after their dog on any publicly-accessible land;

dog to be put on lead when requested by an authorised officer on any publicly-accessible land. This would be used when a dog was out of control;

no Chinese lantern and mass balloon releases on NNDC land.

PSPOs were introduced by the government in 2014. They forbid certain activities in a geographical area.

To see these, and the other proposals, and to comment on them, go to the council's website: consultation period will run until March 3.
