Why should I clean up after my dog?

Scarborough Borough Council takes dog fouling very seriously and take a firm stance on this issue. Under the Fouling of Land by Dogs (Scarborough Borough Council) Order 2012, 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.

If you do not comply with this order we can issue formal Court action at Scarborough Justice Centre or we will issue a fixed penalty notice.
