Report dog fouling

The majority of dog owners and handlers are responsible and pick up after their dog's done its business, but it's the careless few that fail to pick it up that give dogs and their owners a bad reputation.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Not only is dog mess unpleasant, it is human health hazard. The biggest threat to public health is toxocariasis – an infection caused by worms commonly found in dogs intestines. This can cause serious illness, and even blindness.

You can report instances of dog fouling to the District Council via their self-service page
