Dog Fouling is a problem across the whole of the Parish – especially at this time of year with the longer darker nights and mornings.
Failing to clean up after your dog has fouled will result in a fixed penalty being issued – which is for £80 (reduced to £50 if paid within 10 days) or prosecution where if found guilty you would face a maximum fine of £1000. It is not an excuse in law that you were not aware of the fact that the dog had fouled – so you can be held responsible even if you did not see the incident, or if it is witnessed whilst the dog is straying.
To help combat the problem the Parish Council are requesting that details of any roads suffering from dog fouling are reported to the Parish Council office. Staff will then erect stickers in that area to highlight the issue and contact Cornwall Council to request that the area is cleaned.
