Animal Fouling

Dog fouling is dangerous and it is also an offence. Free poop scoops are available from the Parish Council Office (12 High Street, Barrow upon Soar) and The Paper Shop opposite. There are numerous dog waste bins situated around the village.
Please do scoop the poop and use the waste bins provided.

Dog Fouling – a message from Barrow upon Soar Parish Council

Our grounds maintenance contractors have taken unprecedented steps and have refused to mow/strim specific areas due to the disgusting habits of some dog owners/walkers who refuse to pick up after their animals. It is not just on Parish Council land either, you only have to walk the network of jitties/footpaths to find the most popular places irresponsible dog owners/walkers use.

This habit is disgusting, ignorant, offensive and inconsiderate to other users and must stop.

The Parish Council is now faced with a tough decision to create a bye law which would ban dogs from land in its ownership. This includes:

King George V
Mill Lane Recreation area
The Millennium Park and adjacent pic-nic area.

PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOGS! And to all of you who do already WELL DONE! WE REALLY DO APPRECIATE YOUR TAKING THIS MATTER SERIOUSLY!
