The Town Council frequently receive reports of dog fouling in the Town and also irresponsible dog owners leaving poo bags on gates, trees and pathways. Poynton Town Council regards dog fouling as anti-social and views dog owners who fail to pick up their dog’s waste as displaying a disregard for other people, public health and the environment. The Council aims to change public attitudes towards dog fouling and establish a zero tolerance in people’s minds. It is hoped that a shift in attitude will encourage more dog owners to pick up after their pets and discard dog waste appropriately.
