Dog fouling complaint

Please let us know if you encounter any dog fouling by completing our report dog fouling form (external link). Once reported, the East Cambs Street Scene team aim to remove it by the end of the next working day.  If there is an area in general where dog fouling is a problem, please let us know so we can assess the area for adequate disposal facilities, and add the area to the monitoring list.

Owners not clearing up after their dogs

If you witness someone failing to clear up after their dog, you can report it using our report a dog owner form(external link).  We need you to tell us:

  • The name and address of the dog's owner (if known)
  • A description of the dog and owner
  • Car registration (if applicable)

We can investigate, issue warnings, fixed penalty notices or even prosecute people who fail to clear up after their dog, providing you know who that person is, have witnesses the incident and are prepared to give a statement and possibly go to court. You must ensure that you have actually seen them allow their dog to foul and fail to clear it up.  Do not assume that because a person walks the same way each day that it is their dog causing the mess.

Full dog waste bins

If you would like to report a full dog waste bin, please complete our report a full bin form (external link). We aim to empty the bin, once reported, within two working days.
