Disappointment at Irresponsible Dog Owners

It’s very disappointing to see we still have some irresponsible dog owners in the ward.

The signs are everywhere and we’ve given out loads of free rolls of poo bags so it’s difficult to understand why these selfish and lazy owners think it’s OK to leave dog poo on the footpaths and verges particularly near our schools.

Please let me know in confidence if you see any owner not picking up after their dog or you can report them on 01733 747474. We managed to successfully prosecute two owners leading up to Christmas, clearly we need to catch a few more to drive the message home.

A £50 fixed penalty will help concentrate their minds.
