Repeated cases of dog fouling on Main Street, between the War Memorial and Back Lane, have been reported to the Parish Council. The Parish Council work in partnership with Selby District Council and have therefore informed them of the issue.
Selby District Council have adopted the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014. Under this it is an offence to fail to clear up the mess made by a dog which is in your charge on any designated land in Selby district. The maximum penalty for this offence is a fine of £1000.
Designated land is all land to which the public have a right of access.
The following are not acceptable excuses:
- Being unaware of the fouling;
- Not being with the dog at the time; or
- Not having any suitable equipment to remove the mess.
This means that Selby District Council have the potential to prosecute owners who let their dogs roam unattended.
A big thank you to all those who took part in the Annual Spring Clean on the 17th February. In total fourteen bags of rubbish were collected from Hirst Courtney and West Bank. Thank you to Selby District Council for providing the equipment and bin bags.
The Parish Council are collecting evidence of motorists speeding through Hirst Courtney & West Bank in a bid to resolve this long standing issue.
If you see a speeding vehicle please report the time and date of the incident to the parish council by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org . If possible please include a description of the vehicle(s) and number plate(s).
