Closed consultations

Helping to decide our priorities

We have been reviewing our Five Year Plan and held a consultation to gain views on what issues residents would like to see us focus during September and October 2017.

The plan runs until 2021 and contains various actions setting out how we will deliver on our three key priorities - building stronger and healthier communities, driving economic growth and prosperity and making the most of our superb environment.

The survey contained options for residents to choose what they think we should be doing more or less of. The list includes delivering affordable housing, improving people’s health, developing the skills of young people, improving parks and open spaces and making the district an even better place to visit. Residents can also make their own suggestions.

Views will be used to decide on new actions to add to the plan, or replace others with as they are completed and the updated plan is due to go to Council for approval in January 2018.

Dog Control 

On Thursday 1 June 2017, the Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) pursuant to Dog Control came into force within the Malvern Hills district, following public consultation and approval from Malvern Hills District Council’s Executive Committee. We also have the powers to enforce a fixed penalty notice for dog fouling in the district in compliance with The Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996. 
The PSPO covers: 
  • Failure to carry a poop bag or other means to clean up after a dog.
  • Failure to keep a dog on a lead in a designated area.
  • Failure to exclude dogs from fenced off or enclosed children’s playgrounds.
Any breach of the Order could result in the issuing of a £100 fixed penalty notice or being taken to court and receiving a fine on conviction of up to £1000.
