PEVENSEY Parish Council is launching a series of initiatives to deal with dog fouling in the villages.

The council’s recent survey showed that dog fouling is of considerable concern to our parishioners, so it has become one of the priorities in our new, three-year plan.

Pevensey Parish Council has liaised with the Wealden District Council Street Scene Team regarding the support that the District Council can offer and are keen that residents report instances of local dog fouling so that action can be taken.

Wealden District Council Waste and Street Scene Enforcement Team can be found at www.wealden.gov.uk 01323 443322.

Pevensey Parish Council is also planning a number of initiatives, independently, in a bid to tackle the problem. Clear signage on dog waste and litter bins will shortly appear to aid dog owners. Did you know you can use both type of bins to dispose of dog waste? The Council also recently voted to purchase two bag dispensers with biodegradable bag supplies for the village to assist dog walkers to be responsible.

Other initiatives will include ‘pop up’ information points in popular dog walking areas with information and advice on canine welfare as well as an early Summer Dog Show.

Pevensey Dog Show will be held at Pevensey Recreation Ground on Sunday June 9th between 11.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. In partnership with Pevensey Sports Club, who is celebrating its centenary year and local organisation Perfect K9, the show aims to bring the community together in a fun event whilst promoting responsible dog ownership and offering educational information.

Chairman of Pevensey Parish Council, Councillor Peter Lowton commented ‘The Council is aware that there are problems emanating from dog fouling within the community and we have a strong message from the ‘3 Year Plan’ consultation.

We are working with Wealden District Council to address the problem and also believe that, as a community, we have a role to play in educating our residents.

Sponsorship Details and Exhibitor Forms for the Pevensey Dog Show on Sunday 9 June 2019 can be downloaded from Pevensey Parish Council website www.pevenseyparishcouncil.org. Wealden District Council Waste and Street Scene Enforcement Team can be found at www.wealden.gov.uk 01323 443322.
