Creating safer, stronger and active communities

Dog Fouling

Street Scene Officers from Fenland District Council were invited to Alderman Jacobs School to speak to their assembly about the small minority of irresponsible dog owners who fail to clear up after their dogs, this followed on from upset and annoyed parents who contacted both FDC and the school regarding their children who, while walking to and from school, were having to dodge the dog mess left behind and some had got this on their shoes and were carrying it into school and home.

The students were invited to  get involved in a poster completion which will be judged and the winning poster will be displayed around Whittlesey in the next coming week, this is one way Fenland District Council is getting the community on board to help tackle  this issue and hopefully these posters will prick the conscience of the few dog owners who refuse to take responsibility for their dogs.

Look out for these posters which are displayed around Whittlesey !


Should anyone know of regular fouling offenders please contact Fenland District Council Street Scene Team , they will need as much detail as possible such as description of the dog (and owner if known),if you are able to give us addresses too then we can follow this up, please provide regular times this is happening so we can focus our patrols.
