Please use the free bags provided, located in the boxes near most of the entrances to the common, and dispose of it in the dog waste bins. This will insure the common continues to be a clean,safe and pleasant place for all users.
There is now a new box situated on the edge of the common boundary, near the seventh green, beside the two dog waste bins.
Dog fouling and the law
Where there is a persistent problem, officers will try to identify irresponsible dog owners. The Public Space Protection Order makes it illegal to fail to clear up after your dog if it fouls any land that is open to the air and to which the public have access. Inconsiderate dog owners could face a fixed penalty fine of £80 or a fine of up to £1000 if there is a conviction in the courts.
