Local dog fouling: Current response isn't working, admits BCP Council

14 November 2022

BCP Council have admitted that “a more effective solution is required” to dog fouling “than what we currently have”.

Moordown campaigner Kate Salmon had written to BCP to take up concerns she was hearing from local residents about frequency of dog mess left on streets. One in 10 of Kate’s survey respondents in Moordown have mentioned this, while followers of BCP Green Party have confirmed that there are similar concerns in other parts of the conurbation.

Kate says: “I asked about enforcement of penalties. The Council responded that they are currently considering introducing a Public Spaces Protection Order, to make it an automatic offence to not clear up dog mess.”

Kate Salmon says: 'Love dogs, hate uncleared dog mess!'
