A Newport resident has been issued with a £100 fine for failing to pick up dog mess, as North Devon Council continues its fight against dog fouling.
Dog owners in Newport, Barnstaple, were recently reminded to pick up after their pets, following an increase in dog fouling in the area. Neighbourhood Officers from the council’s Environmental Protection team have since been patrolling the green spaces and footpaths of Fairacre Estate, Convent Close, St Josephs Close and the play area at Jordan’s Close on the lookout for offenders.
On Friday 3 May 2019 the council’s Neighbourhood Officers were told about an offence of dog fouling in the Fairacre Estate. As a result, a resident from Shrubbery Close was issued with a fixed penalty notice (FPN) for failing to pick up after her pet.
North Devon Council’s Head of Environmental Health and Housing, Jeremy Mann says: “Most dog owners are responsible and do pick up after their dogs, but a small number continue to leave this dangerous and horrible mess for others to deal with. There is no excuse not to pick up after your dog and we hope this recent FPN demonstrates to the public that we are serious about tackling the problem. Our Neighbourhood Officers patrol the whole of North Devon, but they can’t be everywhere, so we do rely on the community to help keep dog fouling under control. Let us know where the problems are, report it to us online and call out those you see failing to pick up their dog’s mess. Join #TeamNorthDevon and follow our Clear Messages campaign on Facebook and Twitter."

Failure to clean up after your dog can result in a fixed penalty notice of £100, or a prosecution with a maximum fine of £1,000. You can report dog fouling online at www.northdevon.gov.uk/dogs.

If you wish the shop to maintain 
its current opening hours we need your help!
Our current team of Volunteers who run the shop has been depleted
due to various unplanned events. 
Our situation has become critical in that 
the shop may have to remain closed for periods 
as we no longer have sufficient Volunteers
 to cover our advertised Opening Times.
We are proud that our little shop supports
 the village/s, and we are now asking for your help 
(even if it is short term) 
to help us cover the shortage of volunteers 
until some or all are able to return to the shop. 

If you are able to help us please contact 
Heather Baker on 540 196
