Dog Fouling in Brundall

What is the law relating to dog fouling?

Under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 it is an offence not to clean up after a dog has defecated on public land.

 Where does the law apply?

Councils can order dog owners to clean up after their dogs in public area like:

  • Parks/Recreation grounds/Children’s playgrounds/Sports grounds/Picnic sites
  • Pedestrianised areas/Pavements/Verges/Footpaths/Carriageways

 What are the penalties for dog fouling?

People who do not clean up after their dog can be given a £50 on-the-spot fine. If they refuse to pay the fine, they can be prosecuted and may face a court appearance with a maximum penalty of £1,000. Registered blind dog owners are exempt from penalties.

 What if I know of someone allowing their dog to foul?

If you are aware of offenders causing a particular problem in your neighbourhood then contact the Broadland District Council’s Street Scene Team. Tel 01603 430534

 What evidence does the council need?

For us to take formal action, someone has to see the dog(s) causing the fouling nuisance.  That person will need to give a witness statement (available on Broadland’s website, Brundall Parish Council’s website, or by telephoning the Parish Clerk on 07809 144342) and may be required to go to Court as a witness on behalf of the Council.

What are the health risks associated with dog fouling?

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 remain active in the soil for many years, long after the dog mess has weathered away.

 How do I clear up after my dog at home? 

There are three disposal methods we would recommend for dog waste from the home:

  • Most pet stores sell ‘Dog loos’.  These are set into the ground and are supplied with a bioactivator to help break down dog faeces;
  • The dog waste can be buried in your garden;
  • The dog waste can be double wrapped in plastic bags and placed in your green wheeled bin (household rubbish).

Brundall Parish Council thanks all residents for their vigilence in keeping the pavements, paths and amenity areas clear of dog mess.

 

 

 

Neighbourhood Plan – Pre Submission Draft Consultation

Brundall Parish Council initiated the Neighbourhood Plan along with a working party made up of community minded individuals. Without the expertise  of Ingham & Pinnock Consultants, funded by the Community Development Foundation (Locality) to help us to prepare this draft of our Brundall Neighbourhood Plan, we are in no doubt that the process would have been infinitely more difficult.

Brundall is located approximately 7 miles east of Norwich and to the north of the River Yare. The village abuts Surlingham Broad and part of the parish falls within Norfolk Broads National Park. The village has a population of approximately 4,000 residents, is home to a number of number of shops and services and contains a high concentration of employment in the boating and marine sector. It has two railways stations with good links to Norwich and Great Yarmouth and is surrounded by exceptional countryside.

The preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan will enable the local community to establish policy solutions for issues within the Parish over the next ten years and help to ensure that future changes reflect local needs and aspirations.

Pre-submission consultation:

Thank you for visiting this Brundall Parish Neighbourhood Plan page.  The Pre-Submission Draft Neighbourhood Plan consultation period runs from 5th December to 30th January 2015.  Please follow the link below to review the below document and tell us what you think about the emerging Neighbourhood Plan for the village:
