Dog Fouling

This from the Parish Council-

Concerns about dog fouling on the Parson’s Croft playing field have again been raised with the Parish Council. Like all open public spaces in the Village, Parsons Croft is already covered by a Derbyshire Dales Public Space Protection Order. This makes failure to clear up dog fouling an offence for which a fixed penalty can be issued.

If the problem continues, the Parish Council may feel that it has no alternative but to consider applying for a Dog Control Order (DCO) banning dogs from the area altogether.

The Council would be very reluctant to take this step, recognising how unfair it would be to the majority of responsible dog owners. But it has also to consider how unfair it is to residents, and particularly children using the area, to expose them to the health risks caused by illegal dog fouling.

If a DCO had to be introduced, responsibility for the injustice caused to some would lie clearly with those dog owners who had caused the problem.

Please help the Council to avoid the need to consider such a measure by ensuring that these concerns as widely understood as possible.

Instances of dog fouling should be reported here,

This will bring them to the attention of the enforcement officers who can issue fines. It is not necessary to identify the offender in order to make a report. It is possible to request removal of faeces, but if it has been dealt with this can be noted on the report.
