Dog Fouling

There appears to be an increased level of dog fouling of the pavements in Holmer Green. The Parish Council have, over the past years, installed additional bins for the disposal of dog waste. Might we encourage the owners of dogs to use these facilities to minimise the inconvience to the residents of the Village.

Should any resident of the village be aware of the owner of a dog, whose dog fouls the pavement, this Owner should be reported to the Environmental Health Department of Chiltern District Council who will take the appropriate action against the Owner of the dog concerned.

AS A RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNER WE TRUST THAT YOU WILL CLEAN UP THE MESS WHICH YOUR DOG MIGHT HAVE DEPOSITED
