DOG MESS COMPLAINTS
Following a visit from Harborough District Council's Environmental Officer, who's post incorporates Dog Warden Duties, it was confirmed that no formal complaints had been reported to the District Council. If problem areas are not reported through the correct medium and just posted on Facebook appropriate action to resolve these issues cannot be taken. To report issues please contact Harborough District Council on 01858 828282 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Environmental Officer will over the forthcoming weeks be carrying out spot checks around the Parish.
Dog ownership is a personal choice, and to allow a dog to foul in a public place and not clear it up is anti-social and illegal.
It is the responsibility of the person in charge of the dog to clear up its mess. Not seeing your dog foul or not having a bag to clean it up cannot be used as an excuse. It could lead to a fine of up to £1,000.
The Parish Council provide numerous dog waste bins around the village to assist owners to carry out what is their legal obligation. Dog waste (in bags) can be placed in ANY litter bin.
Free dog waste bags are provided for Broughton Astley residents and are available from the Parish Office.
