Your Help Needed to Clamp Down on Dog Fouling

In response to concerns raised by Prince’s Ward Weekly Newsletter readers, local councillors are keen to get your help and advice on how best to clamp down on dog fouling.  Dog mess in public areas like parks, playgrounds and pavements is a continuing problem.  All dog owners have a duty to pick up after their dogs and not doing so could result in the owner getting a fine of up to £1,000.

There are already some schemes that are utilising dog DNA to track down owners who don’t clean up after their pets https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-35363991.

We all want clean streets and in order to reduce the amount of fouling across Prince’s ward, please help the Council identify and fine those people who are responsible.

The first step is to identify areas where the fouling is a particular problem.  If you have repeat dog fouling near where you live or work please email Cllr David Amos at damos@lambeth.gov.uk  with an email subject heading of  ‘Dog mess’ [No photographs please!] and stating the location where it is a problem, and if possible the times of day that the dog mess is left.  This will information will be provided to the Council’s Enforcement Team.
