Scoop the poop… or face a Fixed Penalty Notice*
People who do not clean up after their dog can be given an £80 fixed penalty notice or a court appearance with a maximum penalty of £1000.
People who allow their dog to foul and then fail to remove and dispose of the faeces responsibly are in breach of the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005. Fixed Penalty Notices can be issued by Cornwall Council’s Dog Welfare and Enforcement Officers and the Police.
If you see fouling in public areas please report it to Cornwall Council’s Dog Welfare and Enforcement Officers. If possible give contact details of the owner or a description of the owner and the dog.
Telephone: 0300 1234 212
*dog owners registered blind are exempt from penalties
