A reminder that dogs are not allowed on the Recreation field
A polite notice to parishioners – please clean up after your dog!
A number of residents have complained to the parish council about the amount of dog-related fouling in Monks Eleigh, especially around the recreation field. Dogs are not permitted on the recreation field.
All dog owners have a legal duty to clean up dog mess immediately after their animal fouls a public place. Dog mess laws do not allow the excuse of ‘not noticing’ that the canine has fouled.
As well as being an eyesore, potential health hazard and a nuisance, on most public land it is an offence under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 not to clear up after your dog after it has fouled. Babergh Council has powers to issue 'on the spot' Fixed Penalty Notices of £50, or to prosecute in the criminal courts, which could lead to a fine of up to £1,000.
