Whitehaven dog owners fined for failing to clean up after their pets

THREE dog-walkers have been hit with fines after failing to clear up after their pets in Whitehaven.

Two were caught by Copeland Council’s Enforcement team in the North Shore area, and a third in the vicinity of The Beacon Museum. All three were issued with £80 fixed penalty notices for the offence.

Janice Carrol, Copeland Council’s Community Services Manager, said: “These examples should act as a deterrent for anyone who does not respect the beautiful borough in which we live. We have a zero tolerance approach to dog-fouling.

“Our Enforcement team is extremely active, working on local knowledge and information from the public, to catch – and fine – people whose behaviour has such a negative impact on our surroundings.

“These offenders were caught as a direct result of us receiving intelligence from the public, and we urge anyone who witnesses a dog owner failing to clear up after their pet to get in touch.”

To report episodes of dog fouling, contact Copeland Council on 01946 598300 or [email protected].
