Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester has asked Cheshire East Council to crackdown on dog fouling in the village.
He said, " Most dog owners are responsible and clean up after their pet. However a minority of owners do not and this is very annoying to residents and is a health hazard. At my request Dog Wardens have been active in the village paying attention to the playing fields and streets like Green Lane , Eastern Road, Wybunbury Rd and Circle Ave. Where dog fouling occurs the Dog Wardens spray on a stencil to warn dog owners of the need to clean up after their pet. (See attached photos and e-mails below)
The stencil image stays on the ground for approx 4- 6 weeks and sends out a clear message that the wardens are operational in the area.
This action is followed up with a leaflet drop to houses overlooking the problem areas, asking people to report any dog related issues.
This all links in to our uniform and none uniform foot patrols of the dog wardens.
If the Wardens witness people failing to pick-up after their dog they issue a Fixed Penalty notice.(£50:00 fine) to the offender."
