Parish Council Initiative
In order to make savings this year, Dacorum Borough Council have withdrawn funding to provide dog waste bags throughout the borough.
However, Chipperfield Parish Council consider that the provision of these bags is essential if our village and its open spaces are to be kept clean and free of dog waste. Parish Councillors have therefore decided to purchase a supply of bags for distribution from the boxes on The Common.
If you are a dog owner, please ensure that you clean up after your dog, particularly on pavements and footpaths. The supply of bags will be limited so please do not take more bags than you need and try to persuade visitors not to take handfuls away with them!
Dog owners are legally obliged to clean up after their animals. The penalty for failure to do so is a fine of £1000 !
