Dog fouling

In September 1997, we adopted the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 to help us achieve our aim to make the Borough a cleaner and more environmentally friendly place to live. The legislation means most land within the Borough's boundaries is "clean up after your dog" area. Private gardens, drives etc are not covered as they are not for general public access. If you are not sure whether the Act applies to an area, you should assume that it does. Anyone in charge of a dog who does not clean up at the time the dog has defecated will be issued with a fixed penalty notice (FPN) which carries a fine of £75.00. The notice must be paid to us within 14 days or you may be prosecuted. Offenders also have the option to be dealt with by a magistrates' court where there is a maximum penalty of £1000.00 if they are found guilty.

There are also by-laws covering dogs being on a lead in areas such as walkways next to the highway and not being allowed on the beach at Hill Head between May and September. Offenders may be prosecuted. Please help us achieve our aim by being a responsible dog owner, thereby enabling everyone to enjoy our environment.
