“If you allow your dog to foul in a public place and do not clean up the mess, then under the powers of Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 & The Clean Neighbourhood and Environment Act 2005 you will be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £75.00 for the offence.”
Above part of RCT website but its not working in Aberaman especially in Lewis Street, Cardiff Road, Club Street and Brook Street, dogs are allowed to stray therefore increasing the problem.
Irresponsible dog owners are to blame and the local authority for allowing the dog mess to accumulate and not get cleaned up, dog fouling bins have little use if dogs are allowed to stray and irresponsible dog owners don’t clean up.
Time to bring back the dog license say at £50 a year then if you are a dog lover you won’t mind paying.
