Cheshire East Council has given powers to the 67 Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) in the Borough to issue Fixed Penalty Notices for Littering and Dog Fouling offences.

This is in addition to the Council’s 10 Community Wardens, who already issue such fines.

Councillor Brian Silvester, Cabinet member for Safer and Stronger Communities, said: “Dog Fouling and Litter are issues of great concern to the public and we have adopted a zero tolerance approach to these offences.

“By empowering our PCSOs and working more closely with our partners we are determined to tackle these issues and protect our environment and make it cleaner.”

“The small irresponsible minority of residents and visitors who let their dog foul or just drop litter show a complete disregard for the whole community and this will not be tolerated in Cheshire East”

Those caught will be fined £75 for dropping litter and £50 for letting their dog foul in a public place.
