Dog Fouling Complaint

How do I report dog fouling? 

Please let us know if you encounter any dog fouling, 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.

Who do I contact to make a complaint about an owner allowing their dog to foul? 

If you witness someone failing to clear up after their dog, you can report it using the report form below.  We need you to tell us:

  • The name and address of the dog's owner (if known)
  • A description of the dog and owner; and
  • 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.
