Dog mess or fouling problems

It’s an offence to let a dog in your control foul on ‘designated land’, if you don’t clean up immediately afterwards.

The Council will investigate dog fouling complaints but prosecution is only possible if there is a least one witness prepared to give evidence. The maximum fine is £1,000. The Council also provides anti fouling signs and poop scoop bins where appropriate.

Please use the below form to report dog fouling to the Animal Welfare Officer for investigation.
