A-Z of street care and cleaning
Animals fouling on public footpaths and playing fields causes many problems. It can get on your shoes and clothes, or in the worse cases it can lead to blindness due to an infection called 'Toxocara canis'.
It is an offence for a dog owner not to clean up after their dog on a road, footpath, school playing field, sports field or park. Failure to comply can result in a prosecution and fine up to £1000.
If you see someone committing a animal fouling offence or need to notify us of animal foul, report it using the e-services form: Dog Fouling
