Dog Fouling

Report a dog fouling problem

The local council must keep public areas like parks, playgrounds and pavements clear of dog mess:

Dog owners are required by law to clean up after their dog; failure to do so can result in a fixed penalty notice being issued or possible prosecution. Dog waste should be disposed of in the appropriate manner, either by using our dog or litter bins or by taking it home and disposing of it in your black refuse bin.
