The Parish Council is currently consulting on two new planning applications.
Once again, reports of people not cleaning up after their dogs have fouled have been received, most notably in Yarn Barton where one particular garden is being plagued with dog mess and on route to Broadwindsor School, outside of the Old George. This is a criminal offence and is totally unacceptable. The Dog Warden has been informed. Contact with dog excrement can cause toxocariasis – a nasty infection that can lead to dizziness, nausea, asthma and even blindness or seizures. Anyone who fails to clear up after their dog can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £100. If the case goes to court this could cost the owner or person in charge of the animal up to £1,000. The law states that being unaware a dog has fouled or not having a suitable bag is not a reasonable excuse. You can report dog fouling to Dorset Council by completing a short online form – http://www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/…/dog-warden-service…
