The Council takes dog fouling very seriously. There is a law, which means that all dog owners must clean up after their dog if it fouls in any place open to the public.
If dog owners do not clean up after their animal they could be issued with a fixed penalty notice of £100.00. Where a dog owner refuses to accept the notice the Council will not hesitate to prosecute. Any person convicted of a dog fouling offence in a Magistrates Court may be fined up to £1000.
