The dog control orders set out a range of offences

Dog control orders have been proposed across part of Surrey to provide a "safer and cleaner environment", Elmbridge council has said.

The orders list a range of actions that would be made offences, including fouling, not using a lead and entering land where dogs are excluded.

They would also limit the number of dogs that could be walked.

Public consultation on the orders, which would replace current by-laws, will run until the end of November.

Proposed dog control orders for 92 open spaces, 33 countryside sites, five park areas, 21 recreation grounds, seven cemeteries, and one site run by Surrey Wildlife Trust, are listed on Elmbridge council's website.

The plans have been put forward under the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act.
