Dog fouling continues to be a problem in Tidbury Green. Once again we would like to remind you that if you take out a dog you must clean up after its mess, regardless of whether you are the owner or not. This anti-social behaviour is taken very seriously by the Police, as well as Local Councils. As well as being an unsightly, unpleasant nuisance dog mess can also be a health hazard.

It is an offence to allow a dog to foul in a public place, without clearing the mess up. Solihull environmental health officers make regular patrols and respond to complaints. For first time offenders fixed penalty notices of £75 (reduced to £50 if paid within 5 days) are given. Persistent offenders can be fined up to £1000 and have gone to jail in Solihull for such an offence.

Parishioners can report incidents of dog fouling online via the Solihull MBC Website: www.solihull.gov.uk/Resident/Pests-pollution-food-hygiene/animal/dogfouling or by calling them on 0121 704 8000.
