Animal Fouling

We are responsible for keeping designated areas of council land clear of dog fouling and where appropriate other types of fouling. 

You can help stop dog fouling by:

  • Cleaning up every time your dog fouls
  • Disposing of your dog fouling in public bins or your own household bin
  • Stopping your dog roaming unattended     
  • Reporting dog fouling whether or not it has been witnessed

If dog fouling is witnessed or you do not comply with the Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), you may receive a £100 fixed penalty notice or face prosecution.  For more information click here
