Tarvin Parish Council – Report of Dog Fouling
The vast majority of dog owners in the Parish appear to act responsibly and clear up after their dog's. However, we believe an increasing number of people are not. As Councillors we have seen an increase in dog foul being left on pavements and grass verges, the King George V Playing Field and in Tarvin Community Woodland.
We have also received correspondence from residents regarding an increase in dog foul and discarded bags containing dog foul, along the cinder track from Church Street to Cross Lanes and along the paths across the fields surrounding Church Farm.
We would ask all dog owners and dog walkers to ensure that they clear up after their dogs in a considerate manner. If your dog is off the lead, please ensure you are keeping a close eye on what your dog is doing (this does not apply to King George V Playing Field where dogs must be kept on a lead at all times). Once you have picked up the dog foul, please ensure that you are not disposing of it anywhere but a bin. There are public and dog waste bins across the village so there is no excuse not to dispose of bags correctly.
We have seen when the public waste bins in and near to the Woodland are full, dog walkers are still leaving dog waste bags on top of and beside the bins. If these bins are full, please take any waste home and dispose of it in your domestic waste bin. There is a QR code that can be scanned so that the full bin can be reported to the council for them to come and empty it if it is before the regular emptying day.
Please ensure that you clean up after your dog/s to keep the village clean, safe and tidy for all.
