Dog fouling on the playing field and around the village has become a serious problem, it is an act of pure laziness and completely unacceptable. Dog mess is a serious health risk to children and anyone using the area, it can cause blindness, disease and can even be fatal.
This is the sort of action that is not expected in a close knit community such as Chittlehampton, where we should be looking after other peoples interests.
Therefore the Parish Council is now working closely with the North Devon District Council dog warden Mr. Alan Kyle to alleviate this problem.
Signage is being erected in certain areas warning that anyone who does not pick up their dog’s mess is likely to be prosecuted and could face a fine of up to £1,000.
We need your help in this, especially dog owners, if you see someone not clearing up behind their dog please report it to myself on 01769 540886, Rose Warren on 01769 540714 or to any member of the Parish Council, this will then be passed on to the dog warden for further action, to assist the council we will require a statement of evidence in order to take any action.
Chairman Chittlehampton Parish Council.
