Dog owners falling foul of local authorities' control orders
Dog owners were fined £160,485 in 2015 for offences including failure to 'poop scoop' and using a lead, with local authorities' fixed penalty revenue on dog control order breaches up 3% on £155,256 in 2014.
The top three locations for fines were in Liverpool (£6,320), Torbay (£6,300) and Scarborough (£6,000). But Conwy County Borough Council issued the most penalties at 512.
Malpas has recently seen a spate of dog fouling on a number of streets, including Chester Road, Church St and Well St. if you are caught not clearing up after your dog you risk not only a fixed penalty notice but the potential for a criminal conviction with fines up to £1,000.
Please tidy up after your dog and keep Malpas clean and tidy.
