If you see a dog owner allowing their dog to foul and not picking it up please note down as many details as you can that might help us to identify them. We require the following information to commence an investigation:
We will need a written statement from you for our investigation that could lead to a Fixed Penalty Notice being issued. The current fine is £50. If a person refuses to pay they can be taken to the local Magistrates Court for the dog fouling offence and fined up to £1,000.
To avoid getting a fine, here some tips:
You can report excessive amounts of dog faeces on the pavement by contacting our contractor, Biffa, on 03000 610610 or email@example.com They will arrange for the faeces to be cleaned up.
We are only responsible for clearing the public highway and other relevant land. Landowners are responsible for their own property. You can check if the location is classified as public highway by viewing the Oxfordshire County Council Highways Register.
We are currently undertaking a survey of our existing litter and dog bins and are not installing any new bins at this time. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to add a request to our database to be surveyed to assess for possible future installations.
Dog walkers can use the existing litter bins or their own grey refuse wheeled bin to dispose of bagged dog waste.
If you spot a damaged or overflowing dog mess bin, please let us know by completing an overflowing bin report or by contacting our contractor, Biffa, on 03000 610610 or email@example.com . We can arrange for it to be emptied by ourselves or your local town or parish council.
