There appears to be an increase in dog fouling in the Oscott area at the moment.
I am certainly receiving more complains than usual at the moment.
Approaches to playing fields and on the corners of some roads seem to be the worse areas effected.
I am in regular touch with the Dog Warden service who often come out to do spot checks and deterrent operations. I have also contacted the street cleaning section regarding the offending areas (they will fine offenders they catch) and have also had some litter bins replaced. (bag and bin dog mess).
The vast majority of dog owners are responsible and dislike the idea of dog fouled streets and open spaces as much as anyone else. They do their bit to keep our area dog fouling free but I would ask others to do the same.
No one wants to trail dog mess into their homes and the safety of children who can catch all sorts of deceases from dog mess should be considered.
BAG IT DISPOSE OF IT
