To report a dog fouling incident on public land please contact us or complete our online dog fouling reporting form.
Dog foul carries the eggs of the roundworm (Toxocara Canis), which can be a serious health risk, especially to children.
The Council keeps to the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005. This means if you are a dog owner and your dog fouls on any land to which the public have access, you are responsible for cleaning it up. If you fail to clean it up, then you commit an offence for which you may receive a fixed penalty notice of £100. Persistent offenders could find themselves in court, where they can set much higher fines.
