Dog fouling

We take a hard line in relation to dog fouling and believe people should clear up after their dog.

We patrol local streets that have been highlighted as dog fouling hot spots to catch and fine anyone seen not clearing up after their dog – the fines can be up to £80. Where possible we will take enforcement action and fine people who fail to clear up after their dog(s) on district council owned land or adopted highways.

Fill in our online form to report dog fouling and/or ask us to carry out enforcement action - for example if it is a repeated issue.

Report dog fouling on district council owned land or adopted highways

Depending on the severity of the issue you report, we will either send out a crew to address it as soon as possible, or address it when our team is next in the area, which is normally within 7 days.

If the dog fouling is on private land, please contact the landowner.
