Dog fouling in gardens

Failure to keep a property free of dog fouling on a regular basis can result in a nuisance being caused by smell or flies. Under The Environmental Protection Act 1990 a Statutory Nuisance notice can be served and if the problem continues, the person responsible for the dog may face prosecution.
