Councillors call for tough action on dog fouling.

Councillors have launched a new Locality Action Partnership campaign to tackle dog fouling in the Butt Lane and Clough Hall area. Dog mess is an eyesore and a health hazard and your Councillors are taking tough action.

Town Councillor Sylvia Dymond said: “I am a dog owner and I always pick up after my pets. The problem of dog fouling has increased dramatically in recent years, but it is now time for some action. I am throwing all my support behind this local campaign, ‘Don’t be mucky, clean it up ducky’. We have posters and stickers available to deter people from allowing their pets to foul outside your home or on the pavements in the area. Please contact us for more information.”

Kyle said: “Since becoming Chair of Public Protection I have pushed for more enforcement on those that refuse to pick up after their dogs. It is a crime and I urge the public to report the culprits to Newcastle Borough Council on 01782 717717. We have a hard line approach on this matter at the Council and we regularly prosecute offenders. Some fines have reached up to £1000. It is important to recognise that the majority of dog owners are sensible and do the right thing.”
