Dog fouling

The whole of South Norfolk is covered by a Public Spaces Protection Order made under section 59 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. This Order can be viewed here.

This makes it an offence for a person in control of a dog not to clear up the dog mess immediately on any land that is open to the air and to which the public is entitled or permitted to have access (with or without payment).

Offenders can be issued with a fixed penalty notice of £80, reduced to £60 if paid within 10 days, or if taken to court, a fine up to £1,000.

If you see someone allowing their dog to foul and not clear it up, please contact us with the owner’s details and where it happened so we can investigate it. We will also clean it up.
