Dog fouling

If you see a dog owner allowing their dog to foul and not picking it up, or someone deliberately dropping litter, please note down as many details as you can that might help us to identify them.  You can report them.

We will need a written statement from you for our investigation that could lead to a fine or prosecution.

To avoid getting a fine, here some tips:

  • never let your dog walk far from you as this makes it difficult to see when they foul
  • always carry a bag when walking your dog so you can clean up. If you do not have a bag ask another dog walker if they have a spare
  • encourage your dog to stay on the perimeters of fields or pitches to prevent any fouling causing harm to other people
  • NB – You will be breaking the law if your dog is not wearing a collar and ID tag and is not microchipped.

Overflowing dog bins

If you spot a damaged or overflowing dog mess bin, please let us know by completing an overflowing bin report and we can arrange for it to be emptied by ourselves or your local town or parish council.
