Councillor Darryl Wilson says “Clampdown on irresponsible dog owners begins. Help us tackle the problem by reporting offenders. I welcome the decision by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council to tackle irresponsible dog owners.
Over the last number of months your local Ulster Unionist team have been working with Council officers to bring about a strategy which should see dog fouling incidents reduced within the Borough In efforts to prevent dog fouling incidents, Council’s Dog Wardens have identified heavily fouled local streets and areas for additional patrols.
They are North Road and Kilraughts Road, Ballymoney; North Street (Glass Island Area) and Atlantic Avenue, Ballycastle; Station Road, Dungiven; Scroggy Road, Limavady; Girona Avenue, Portrush; and Mountsandel Road, Coleraine. Signage will be erected to identify areas targeted. Incidents of dog fouling in these areas will be recorded over 4 weeks and dog walkers are invited to support Council by being responsible and picking up dog foul to prevent littering the Borough.”
Council has asked the public to report dog fouling to Council’s Environmental Services Department on 028 7034 7171 or email [email protected]
