Dog Fouling Update – Thank You

by jontwigge on 22 January, 2018

Following our story on dog fouling last week we had a number of comments about problem areas – thank you !

Council officers have already been out and put up signs at some of the sites and more will follow.  Please keep telling us about the worst areas.

One of the Glow-In-The-Dark Signs

Unfortunately, some of the signs quickly go missing!  The ones on the passage between the parts of Peter Street, leading to Sainsbury, fell foul of this.  When this happens they will not be replaced immediately or they would go even faster but in bad areas they will be back at some point.

We are still asking if we could get more varied signs up as well – perhaps designed by children or the community.  Some areas of the country have had very positive results when local people are behind signs and the community works together to combat the problem.

    People who own dogs should be more responsible. Should be their problem not ours.

    Absolutely right, it should be there problem. And if we had evidence as to who does then it would be. In the meantime, unfortunately we have to do our best to solve or at least reduce the problem.
