Res­i­dents are be­ing asked to watch out for peo­ple who al­low their dogs to foul in public and to re­port them.

The coun­cil has joined forces with En­vi­ron­men­tal Health of­fi­cers and po­lice to fight back.

As well as ask­ing the public for their help the coun­cil is also con­sid­er­ing us­ing CCTV, DNA testing and flu­o­res­cent spray to deal with the prob­lem.

Dog foul­ing can be par­tic­u­larly danger­ous for chil­dren be­cause of the tox­o­cara par­a­site.

Not clear­ing up af­ter a dog is an of­fence and can re­sult in a £75 Fixed Penalty No­tice. Fail­ure to pay this could lead to a £1,000 fine.

Peo­ple who bag the mess but don’t dis­pose of it prop­erly, such as by plac­ing bagged fae­ces in hedges, can be fined up to £2,500 for lit­ter­ing.

Res­i­dents are be­ing asked to re­port to the coun­cil where and when dog waste is be­ing left, along with a de­scrip­tion of the dog or its owner.
