Dog fouling

There has been an increase in dog fouling around the parish in recent months. This is totally unacceptable. Please clean up after your dog:  you can use any street bin – dog or general litter bin – or you can take it home with you and put in your household waste.

Failure to clean up may incur a Fixed Penalty Notice of £75, or a criminal conviction in Court, with the possibility of a fine of up to £1,000.

It is the responsibility of the dog owner to clean up after the dog if it fouls in a public area. The only exception is for people who are registered blind. This is the law, and it applies almost everywhere, including all locations where the public has permission to access private land, even if there is no signage.

If you are aware of anyone not clearing up after their dog please report it to the Parish Council or to West Somerset District Council online at Report-Dog-Fouling .   Any information provided will be treated confidentially. You will need to provide details of an incident and may be asked to provide a witness statement so that formal action can be taken. This is a problem that is never going to be solved without the co-operation of both dog-owners and residents who can provide information.
