Tougher penalties for dog-fouling offenders

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is cracking down on dog owners who fail to clear up after their pet has fouled in a public space by introducing tougher penalties.

Anybody caught not cleaning up after their dog has fouled in a public space, or not carrying with them a way of clearing up after their dog, such as dog poo bags, faces an on-the-spot fine of £100 or a court prosecution. This is double the previous Fixed Penalty Notice of £50 which could be issued for dog fouling offences.

A borough-wide Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for dog fouling will enable the tougher penalties to be enforced.

It is an offence for dog owners to not clear up after their dog has fouled in a public space and requires they carry an appropriate means to pick up their dog’s poo.

The council is reacting to growing concern and numerous complaints from borough residents about an increase in dog fouling in their neighbourhoods.

A public consultation on plans to introduce the order saw 97 per cent of the 848 respondents agree that people who fail to pick up after their dogs have fouled is a problem in the borough and supported the proposed powers to deal with this.

Cabinet Member for the Environment and Enforcement Cllr Hayley Eachus said: “We have introduced the Public Space Protection Order across the borough in a bid to eradicate the unsightly and dirty problem of dog fouling and to respond to public concern.

“The majority of dog owners act responsibly and clear up their pet’s mess but there are a minority that still do not and this lazy and selfish behaviour cannot be condoned. We hope these tougher measures, which include a £100 on-the-spot fine and the prospect of prosecution, will act as a deterrent to those owners who do not clear up after their dogs.

“Residents have told us that clean streets, parks and open spaces is a priority for them and the pandemic has highlighted the importance of these areas in enhancing physical and mental wellbeing. We will continue to work hard to tackle this antisocial and irresponsible behaviour in our borough.”
