Dog fouling across Rhondda Cynon Taf is a major problem and the Council is looking to clampdown on irresponsible dog owners.

One of the options being considered is the introduction of a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO), which, if adopted, would provide a range of powers to tackle dog fouling and irresponsible dog ownership.
