Dog Fouling in Wingerworth

Dog Fouling in Wingerworth

The Parish Council have received reports of increasing incidents of dog fouling at various locations around the village.

Dog fouling can cause serious health risks, particularly to children, due to the bacteria it contains. It also spoils the environment for all.

In North East Derbyshire it is a criminal offence, under a Public Spaces Protection Order, to not clean up your dog's waste. If you are witnessed failing to clear your dog's waste, you will be issued with a £100 fixed penalty notice. The fixed penalty is an alternative to being taken to court.

If you witness any incidents of dog fouling, these can be reported to NEDDC via the online form (link below).
