You have taken the trouble to BAG IT so why would you not BIN IT?


I have been asked to raise awareness of the recent appearance of white dog pooh bags appearing around the village. In particular several have been left on the footpath to Surlingham Church Marsh. Also Pooh bags left hanging on the play park fence and by the allotments.

Under the Public Spaces Protection Order made under section 59 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. It is and offence for a person in control of a dog not to clear up the dog mess immediately on any land that is open to the air and to which the public is entitled or permitted to have access.

Can I remind dog owners that there is a Dog Pooh Bin at the top of New road by the path to the playpark and allotments? Also, that Dog Pooh bags can be disposed of in general household waste bins.
