We have received increasing reports of dog fouling in the town. This is clearly offensive, but if incidents and locations of fouling are reported to Wiltshire Council the local Dog Warden can consider taking action

Wiltshire Council reminds us that "dog owners must, by law, pick up any mess made by their pets in public places such as roads, footpaths, school playing fields, sports fields and parks. Our enforcement officers can issue on-the-spot fixed penalty notices and refer offenders for prosecution."

There are three ways of reporting dog fouling to Wiltshire Council, using the MyWiltshire system:

  • phone Wiltshire Council on 0300 456 0105,
  • report using the MyWiltshire pages on the Wiltshire Council website www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywilts 
  • report via the MyWiltshire smartphone app.

If sufficient reports of dog fouling are reported, then the Dog Warden can patrol the area and put up warning signs. If the culprit(s) can be personally identified, then it is possible for the Dog Warden to visit those persons.

More information about Wiltshire Council's services with respect to dog fouling is at this link http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/parkingtransportandstreets/roadshighwaysstreetcare/roadsstreetcleaning.htm#roads-dog-mess-anchor 

Wiltshire Council also have a more general leaflet about their Dog Warden Service which can be viewed here.
