Clean-up On The Common & In The Village

19th of July 2002

Anyone who walks on The Common or through the village cannot help noticing the quantity of dog waste on footpaths, verges and in open spaces. Dog owners should be aware that if their dog fouls public paths or open spaces, they are legally obliged to clean it up. To make this easier, the Parish Council have recently re-sited a dog waste bin half-way along Kings Lane and installed an additional bin on Footpath 14.

Free poop bags can be collected from Brits News and from the porch of Keston Cottage on The Common and two new poop bag dispensers have been placed on either side of The Common at the corners of the church car park and cricket car park.

The Parish Council is working with Dacorum Borough Council to support responsible dog ownership and to encourage dog owners to clean up after their animals, will soon be enforcing the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act. People who are seen to allow their dogs to foul and do not clean up afterwards will be issued with a fixed penalty notice which carries a fine of £50.

The annual public walk-about to find out about the progress of work on The Common and in the woodlands will take place on Thursday 18 July, meeting at 7.30pm in the car park next to St. Pauls Church. Phillip Russell, Woodlands Officer for Dacorum Borough Council, will be leading the walk and will be pleased to answer any questions from residents.
