Dog Fouling

Dog fouling is becoming a major problem around the Parish. The PET team and local residents are increasingly reporting that our footpaths are being blighted by irresponsible dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets.

As there are many dog waste bins sited around the Parish, and waste bags are available free of charge from the Parish Office, there is no excuse for failing to clean up after your dog.

Dog fouling offences can be reported via the Telford & Wrekin Council website or the Everyday Telford App

Failure to clean up quickly and permanently after your dog is an offence for which you may receive either a fixed penalty fine of £50 or you may be prosecuted in the Magistrates Court. This can result in a fine of up to £1,000.
