DOG FOULING NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH
Following my requests there have been Dog Warden Patrols recently in the vicinity of Burford Road Playing fields recently as well as the Aldridge Road Recreation Ground Wardens have been out monitoring roads in the area, reassuring residents and speaking to dog walkers. They will also be on the Bandywood Estate soon.
There are litter bins and now new no dog fouling signs in in the area and in some cased I have had to ask for extra street cleaning to take place. Owners should pick up their dogs mess and bag it and bin it.
Most dog walkers have no issue with picking up and disposing their dogs mess. The stubborn few that do not may expect a fine if caught.These fines are in some cases quite hefty.
The Birmingham City Council now has limited resources due to the unprecedented cuts in funding from Central Government and dealing with the issue of dog fouling can be difficult but if you are a Oscott resident who has a particular concern please let me know and I will do what I can to help.
