The article on this published on 29 March prompted the following response from a local resident
Hi there, I writing to register my disgust at the amount of dog faeces hanging in bags on the gate at the top of a Peel Barton Lane. The irresponsibility of dog owners in the village is a disgrace, it really spoils the environment for everyone including my self a non dog owner. I appreciate that the owners have collected the dog waste in bags, but then why hang it on the gate? Take your rubbish home with you. I will be watching, out for any individuals I see will be reported.
Once again we ask all dog owners to ensure they pick up their pets' faeces and dispose of them in the various dual use bins that now exist around the village. The majority of owners are doing this but are being let down by the few that aren't. Remember the public are being asked to be to be vigilant and report ant cases where owners are neglecting their responsibilities.
Councils up and down the country are imposing fines where owners have been caught not picking up and an increasing number of councils are issuing fines where owners are caught without bags.
Dog Poo should be picked up immediately in a public place, footpaths and farmland and disposed of either in one of the waste bins located throughout the village (not at the One Stop) or double wrapped they may be disposed of with domestic waste.
Dog Poo is not always being picked up in the village or is even bagged and then hung or thrown in hedges. Not only are people affected by inconsiderate dog owners but farm animals are also put at risk when dogs foul grazing land.
The Fixed Penalty Notice for dog fouling is £80 or a maximum of £1,000 on conviction.
If you know of a particular problem place and times that owners are not picking up, please let a councillor know and the Parish Council can ask an SSDC enforcement officer to attend and a fixed penalty notice will be issued.
