DOG FOULING

We take the issue of dog fouling, particularly in the Playing Fields, very seriously. We cannot overstress the dangers dog faeces poses – Toxocariasis is found in dog faeces and can cause partial blindness. It’s a shame that just a few uncaring dog owners spoil things for others. Dog deposits provided it’s bagged up can be put into any street amenity bin. Please do not use private household bins. If you see anyone failing to clear up after their dog please contact the Community or Dog Wardens. Please be aware that failing to clear up after your dog is an offence and the Borough Council enforces dog fouling through the Dogs Fouling of Land Act 1996 which applies to all land within the borough which is in the open and to which the public have access. If you have a dog fouling complaint obtain as much information as possible as it will assist the Dog Warden.
