Stencils painted at school to combat dog fouling

STENCILS have been etched on to the ground near an infant and nursery school to warn dog walkers to pick up after their pets.

Fresh signage is now up and stencils are down along the paths near to Church Gresley Infant and Nursery School, in York Road, to hammer home the message that letting dogs foul and not picking it up will not be tolerated.

The stencils were painted on by South Derbyshire District Council’s environmental health team last week.

Patrols from the Wardens are also taking place at all times. Offenders can be issued with a £75 Fixed Penalty Notice.

It comes as Wardens have had to give out more warnings this month to dog walkers in Maurice Lea and Eureka Parks.

By law, dogs have to be kept on the lead in these parks and Wardens can issue £75 fixed penalty notices when they are not. Keeping a dog on a lead is one of the best controls a dog owner can use to prevent fouling.

For dog walkers who want to let their dog off the leash they should check the Dog Control Order – to see where this is fine to do.
