Dog Waste and Fouling

Our Services

Bagged dog waste while walking your dog on parish land can be deposited in any litter bin that is available.

Dog fouling is an important neighbourhood issue which has an impact on us all but enforcement for the whole of the District is the responsibility of Civil Enforcement Officers at NWLDC who can issue Fixed Penalty Notices, currently £80, using powers from the Dog Control Orders under the 2005 Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act.  If you know of, or suspect an offender, please call 01530 454545 in confidence or email  (with times, dates, place and description of the offender).

Thank you to most of our dog owners who are responsible and take good care of their pets and pick up the waste that their dog leaves.
