This notice is to inform anyone with an interest that the Common Council of the City of London is considering extending the duration of the following public spaces protection orders at Burnham Beeches from 1 December 2017 for a further three year period under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014: 1. Fouling of Land by Dogs Order. This makes it an offence on land to which the order applies for any one at any time to fail to remove dog faeces deposited by a dog for which he or she is responsible. The order applies to the whole of Burnham Beeches.
2. Dogs on Leads Order. This makes it an offence on land to which the order applies for anyone at any time not to keep a dog for which he or she is responsible on a lead of not more than five metres in length. The order applies to that part of Burnham Beeches to the west of Sir Henry Peeks Drive and Halse Drive and to the two fenced areas of approximately 319 square metres and 221 square metres adjoining the cafe enclosure at Burnham Beeches.

This is only a summary of the relevant offences and certain exemptions and defences apply. The above orders were made as dog control orders under the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 and came into force on 1 December 2014. Due to legislative changes, the provisions of any surviving dog control orders will automatically be treated as if they were the provisions of public spaces protection orders from 20 October 2017; however the above orders will then expire on 30 November 2017 unless extended for a further period of up to three years. References to Burnham Beeches are to that area of land known as Burnham Beeches in the Parishes of Farnham Royal and Burnham owned by the Mayor and Commonalty and Citizens of the City of London and including all roads, highways and other rights of way over that land.
