Residents have complained that there has been an increase of dog fouling on Whickham School field. Most dog walkers are very considerate and clear up after them, but a small number have been causing concern to residents. Another issue is that a small number of owners are throwing wrapped dog waste into nearby bushes, rather than disposing of it in a bin.
Local Lib Dem councillors have responded in 3 ways:
1)Local Environmental services have been asked to clear up the mess - this has now been done.
2)The Dog Warden team has been asked to make extra patrols in the area.
3)An extra bin has been ordered for the corner of the school field next to Corsair / Parkway.
