Proposal for a Dog Exercise Enclosure
Dog mess is the most unacceptable and offensive type of litter on our streets. Our research tells us that dog fouling is the issue the public are most concerned about.

Dog fouling is not only deeply unpleasant, it is dangerous. Whilst rare, contact with dog excrement can cause toxocariasis (click to read more about it) – a particularly nasty infection that can lead to dizziness, nausea, asthma and even blindness or seizures.

It’s no wonder dog fouling is such a problem – there are estimated to be more than 8 million dogs producing more than 1,000 tonnes of mess every day in the UK alone.

We have new signage, but that does not always do the trick

The results of the poll where overwhelmingly for it, with a sample size of  108 people. It was voted at June 28th 2022 Open Spaces Meeting to go ahead. More info to come
