Normanton on Soar Parish Council has received numerous complaints regarding the nuisance of dog fouling in the village and on the playing field with regard to dog owners not cleaning up after their dogs.
Dog mess is unsightly, messy and even a potential health hazard including ‘toxocara canis’. Most dog owners are responsible owners and pick up after their pets, but a few owners still allow their dogs to foul pavements and footpaths.
If you are caught by the dog warden for not cleaning up after your dog, you will face either an on the spot fine of £50, or a fine of up to £1,000 on prosecution applies if you allow your dog to foul in a public place and you fail to clean it up straight away.
The Parish Council provides dog pooh bags, which are available at the Village Shop. Anyone witnessing a dog owner not cleaning up after their dog should either report the incident directly to the dog warden at Rushcliffe Borough Council 0115 9819911 or contact the Clerk direct on 01509 560807.
LET'S KEEP THE VILLAGE CLEAN AND SAFE FOR ALL.
