Telscombe Town Council is considering a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for the Tye to control dog walking to prevent sheep attacks. This has been considered at several meetings and further information can be found by looking at the Agenda and paperwork for the Council’s Extra-Ordinary meeting on 15th August 2018. A PSPO has to be put in place by the District Council and at their cabinet meeting on 17th September, they decided to go ahead with a public consultation. A statement from Lewes District Council made on 19th September is as follows:- “On 24th September we are launching a consultation on three options for a proposed PSPO on Telscombe Tye. The proposed PSPO would be to protect the lambs and ewes that graze on the Tye from being scared, injured or killed by dogs by requiring owners to keep their dogs under proper control. The proposals were written up in consultation with the Kennel Club and other key stakeholders. Nothing has been decided yet and we welcome everyone’s views on these options, as well as alternative proposals people may have.
