Dog and animal fouling

To report dog fouling call customer services on 01723 232323.


Why should I clean up after my dog?

Under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 (to see a copy of the Act please go to the OPSI Website) it is an offence to allow a dog to foul in any area open to the public, without the person who is in charge of the dog clearing up the mess immediately.
The Council will either issue a fixed penalty notice (currently £50) or prosecute offenders through the Courts (maximum fine £1000).
