Middleton Cheney Parish Council actively encourages dog owners to act responsibly and clear up after their dogs.
It is illegal not to clear up the mess left by your dog as soon as it has fouled and those that leave their mess behind are liable to a fixed penalty notice.
- With many dedicated dog waste bins throughout village, there is no excuse to leave dog mess on the paths and open spaces
- If you can't find a dog bin, bag your pet's faeces and take it home for disposal. If no other option is available, pick up any mess and seal it well using a bag which can then be carefully placed in a standard litter bin
It is the responsibility of the dog owner or the person in charge of a dog to clear up any mess left by the dog as soon as it has fouled.
- Dogs are restricted in children's playgrounds around the village.
