Four roads in Preston have been turned into crackdown areas to stop dog fouling in the city.Advertisement
Brackenbury Road, Ripon Street, Roebuck Street and Geoffrey Street are being targeted by Preston City Council dog wardens to stop dog faeces being left on the pavements.
Following a successful prosecution of a St Matthews man for failing to pick up after his dog, Blog Preston readers left comments about the state of dog poo in their areas.
Council bosses monitored the comments and decided to act after seeing the strength of feeling about the problem.
Dog wardens were sent out to the four areas in question to see if the problem was as bad as Blog Preston readers had reported.
A council spokesman said: “Following the investigation four areas have now been made Dog Fouling Zones. This means that dog wardens will now go to the areas and go door to door asking for information or leaflet dropping if there is no answer. They will also be in the area a bit more to try and deter/catch any more dog fouling.”
The city council is urging residents to report problems with dog fouling to them via their website.
But it just shows, by talking **** on Blog Preston you can help ensure the mess is cleaned up!
