Dog Fouling is one of the top anti social problems nationwide. Dog mess is unsightly, unpleasant & can spread disease, or in extreme cases, cause blindness.
If you do not ensure dog mess is picked up & properly disposed of a £80- £1000 Penalty may be payable.
Here are some tips on how to avoid a fine and how not to annoy other amenity users.
Under the District of South Hams Fouling of Land by Dogs Order 2013 the person in charge of a dog, whether they are the owner or not, must clean up after the dog has fouled in any area to which the Act, as adopted, applies. It is an offence not to clean up, where the Act applies, punishable by a maximum fine of £1000 or a fixed penalty of £80. Registered blind people are not required to clean up after their guide dogs.
