Animal Fouling

Please contact the Clerk, or Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council Neighbourhood Wardens (01455 238 141) to provide details of your animal fouling concerns.

The Parish Council work in conjunction with Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council to deal with dog fouling and there is a procedure which we follow, a copy of which is available from Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council.

Whilst dog bins are OK, they are not essential as ANY rubbish bin or household bin can be used to put the bags in. Specific dog waste bins are provide around the parish and in the recreation grounds, for dog walkers to dispose of foul waste.

Some people will not clear up after their dog whether there are bins present or not. If reported these people can be fined up to £1,000.

If you know of areas that are affected, please let us know using the Contact Us page on the left, send us an email or call the Clerk and leave a message.

We need to to know as a minimum where and when you saw it.

Also it would help if you can supply us with a description of the offender and dog.

If you come across bags left hanging in trees or piled besides bins we also need to know as this constitutes fly tipping.
