Dog Fouling in Barnes
We, the undersigned, petition the council to introduce an effective 'zero tolerance' policy against littering of dog litter bags and dog fouling; introduce more signage of FPNs; install dog foul bins on or near green grass spaces; issue free dog litter bags; and introduce a major 'enforcement awareness campaign' to inform the public of the consequences of breaking ‘enviro-laws’.
Dog fouling is a nuisance and can also be a danger, particularly to young children, as it can lead to serious illnesses such as Toxocariasis (round worm infection). The worst effected areas in Barnes are ALL the footpaths, pavements and green spaces leading into Stilling Fleet Road where Lowther Primary School is situated. Everyday the footpaths are littered with dog mess which is hazardous to children on scooters, bicycles, foot and baby strollers.
