Dog fouling

March 19th 2020

The Council is aware of the apparent increase in dog fouling and asks the community to use Cornwall Council’s ‘Report it’ facility on its website – please click on the link below.

This is important because the more often we report dog fouling using this method, the more likely Cornwall Council Enforcement Officers will visit our area.

We have also asked the Cornwall Council Enforcement Manager to undertake a walkabout accompanied by the clerk and a councillor to identify the fouling ‘hot spots’ and it would be really helpful to know where, in particular, you have encountered this problem.

If possible, could you also let us know the time(s) of day it seems to occur. Please email these details to councillor.player@sterth-pc.gov.uk by 6th April.

If a pattern emerges, then Enforcement resources can be targeted to those places at those times.

Subject to the changing circumstances we are all facing at the moment, the Parish Council plans to receive a presentation from Cornwall Council’s Enforcement Manager at its next meeting on 15 April to learn what can be done to tackle the problem more effectively and how Cornwall Council can support the Parish Council in taking more action.
