Dog fouling is definitely on the increase according to the responses to our street surveys. Together with the City Council there is to be a new initiative in the area as detailed below. Before anyone asks, yes we are aware of dog fouling in other areas too (and particularly in New Headington) but this is a good start. We are not publishing dates and times for obvious reasons!
There will be three operations focusing on three hot spot areas.
- Margaret Road Recreation Ground and surrounding Streets.
- Franklin Road and Surrounding Streets
- Pitts Road and Surrounding Streets
The operation will include carrying out enforcement action, updating the area with the PSPO enforcement information and hand delivering educational letters to local residents to areas that overlook green space areas.
This will be a high visibility operation.
