The failure of some dog owners to clear up after their pets has been a long running issue in Tregony. The parish council has tried various measures involving posting notices about the penalties for dog fouling, spray painting on the pavements where dog mess has been left, and also imposing a ban on dogs on the sports field from dusk to dawn.
Because of the continuing problem of dog mess on the sports field, the parish council is considering a complete ban on dogs on the sports field. This issue will be debated at the parish council meeting on Monday 13 September.
Parish council meetings are open to the public and there is a slot allowed in the agenda for representations or questions from local residents at the start of each meeting. If anyone wishes to make representations on the issue of dog fouling on the sports field, they should consider attending this meeting and putting their views to the parish council prior to the item being debated.
