Dog owners are required by law to clean up after their dog. Failure to do so can result in a fixed penalty notice being issued or possible prosecution.
Dog waste should be disposed of in the appropriate manner, either by using our litter bins, our dog waste bins or by taking it home and disposing of it in your household landfill bin.
Dog faeces are unpleasant and can present a serious health hazard, particularly to young children.
Please let us know if you see a dog fouling.
