REPORTS in STANHOPE PARK, Holsworthy
In Torridge, it is an offence for a person in charge of a dog not to clean up immediately if the dog has fouled on public land.
SO PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE A DOG …
• Always carry bags when you take your dog out so you can clean up when it ‘goes to the toilet’
• Be considerate, do not exercise your dog in a children’s play area, a school field or sports ground, or ornamental gardens
• If there is no poop scoop bin available, please take the waste home with you to dispose of
• Worm your dog at regular intervals throughout the year – ask your vet for advice
• Never allow your dog to wander unsupervised in a public place
If you see somebody who doesn’t clean up after their dog, or who lets their dog out unsupervised and doesn’t clean up please complete the online form below
Information can be given confidentially

The Penalty
The penalty in relation to any offence in any dog control order is, on summary conviction, a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale (£1,000)
A person may be offered the chance to discharge any liability to conviction for any offence under any dog control order by payment of a fixed penalty – see fees and charges http://www.torridge.gov.uk/…/Financial-Services-Publications

If a Fixed Penalty Notice is not paid, you may be prosecuted for the offence.
The easiest way to avoid prosecution or a Fixed Penalty Notice is to be a Responsible Dog Owner and not commit the offence
