Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996


Dear Hadstock Residents

Hadstock Parish Council continue to be concerned about the issue of Dog Fouling in the Village and in particular on the Recreation Ground which a wonderful open space for all to use.

We recently held a very successful ‘Clear and Clean’ session on the Recreation Ground, and some new play equipment has been installed together with a new picnic bench and seating. This adds to the enjoyment of the area for children to play in a safe environment. Their safe environment however is being blighted with inconsiderate dog owners who allow their dogs to foul the Village particularly the Recreation Ground.

New signs have been placed and an additional dog bin has been purchased to be installed near the village green however ……………..DOGS CANNOT READ and owners have a responsibility to pick up after their dogs or face a fine.

Please clear up after your dog it is irresponsible to allow your dog to run free in a public open space

Because Toxocara canis is a roundworm found in dogs. Roundworm eggs are found in dog mess, which can easily be picked up by young children. This causes stomach upsets, sore throats, asthma and in rare cases blindness. The eggs can stay active in the soil for many years, long after the dog mess has weathered away.

Or else face a fine under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996

Under this Act you face a fine of up to £1,000 if you do not clean up after your dog.

Update 17 June 2017
Recreation Ground Clean and Care this was a great success with approximately 10 villagers including some of our younger residents helping to carry out repairs, paint, install ,clear and clean on the Recreation Ground. We are very mcuh aware that dog fouling continues to be a problem but we have plan!!!! the owners  who allow their dogs to spoil the enjoyment of our open spaces should be aware that the problem is being addressed (but of course we are not letting you know of our plan !!!) but hopefully those who need to be aware will act more responsibly.
