With the dark nights approaching the Parish Council receive an increase in complaints from residents regarding dog mess around the village.

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.
