If anyone is seen committing an offence leaving their dog/s faeces on the floor, they may receive a fixed penalty notice. If they do not pay the fine within the required timescale, this may lead to court action, they may receive a fine up to £1000 plus costs.

For your information:

  • If your problem relates to excessive dog fouling in a person’s private garden you need to report rubbish on private land or contact the social housing landlord depending on the situation.
