Lydiate – Dog Fouling

Lydiate parish Council has updated me on the ongoing problem of dog fouling on the pavements in the vicinity of Lydiate Primary School in Lambshear Lane.

Sefton Council, I am told, has received 50 complaints from parents. As a result they have put stickers up in the area around the school and also in surrounding roads.

As much dog muck as possible has been cleaned up and the private company Sefton Council use, NSL, have checked early mornings and early afternoons (especially near to the school) but have had no success so far in catching anyone allowing their dog to foul the pavements and verges.

Rob Monks, Sefton’s Principle Environmental Health Officer, requests that members of the Lydiate public give as much information as possible about the fouling that they have seen i.e. type of dog, time of day etc.

This photo is from August 2012 when both I and Andrew Blackburn were both Borough Councillors for Lydiate and we had a new bin installed outside the School to try to get the few dog walkers that are the cause of the problems to use a bin for their dog muck.

Sadly three and half years on and the anti-social minority are still making the lives of everyone else a mucky misery. Please feel free to shop the dog owners who don’t care about Lydiate.
