Residents are being urged to have their say on proposals restricting where people can walk their dogs.
Dogs could be excluded from a number of sites including children’s play facilities and sports pitches owned by the council under the plans.
The public space protection order would require dog owners to keep their pets on leads in designated town centre areas in Accrington and in each of the townships, and the continuation of the requirement for dogs to be kept on leads in the three cemeteries.
Coun Ken Moss, cabinet member for parks and open spaces, said: “A new Act of Parliament requires the council to update our own legislation locally.
“We have put forward a number of proposals, based on our local knowledge and are looking to Hyndburn people to let us know what they think.”
Deputy leader Coun Paul Cox said ‘no decision’ has been taken and they want to ‘strike a balance’ between the needs of all the different user groups.
