Fines for littering or dog fouling

From June we will have enforcement officers on the streets and in parks fining people who drop litter or who don't clean up after their dogs.

Litter louts face fines of £75 while irresponsible dog walkers who don't clear up dog mess will receive fixed penalty notices of £100. Anyone caught will have 14 days to pay. Non payment could result in court action.

It is an offence not to clear up immediately after your dog has fouled. Dog waste should be bagged and placed in dog waste bins. If there isn't a dog waste bin nearby, you can place dog waste in a litter bin as long as it's bagged, or take it home with you and place in your rubbish bin.
