Northwich is next target for council team tackling littering and dog fouling

1 February 2016

Cheshire West and Chester Council Regulatory Services Team has expanded its enforcement activity to Northwich.

Officers are now out and about in the town tackling littering and dog fouling; anyone caught committing offences will receive a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) for £75.

This is in addition to the enforcement started in Chester city in the run up to the Christmas.

The start of the enforcement patrols was planned to coincide with an impact day to clean up the area at the end of Royle Street in Northwich, organised by the Town Council. Regulatory Services officers joined forces with volunteers and were on hand to offer advice to residents and issue FPNs if required.

Councillor Mark Henesy, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community, said: “The Regulatory Services team continues to target the issues our residents feel most strongly about: dropping littering and not picking up after your dog.

“We now have a full schedule of enforcement patrols planned across the borough and will issue Fixed Penalty Notices to thoughtless individuals who spoil the environment for everyone else.” The increase in enforcement activity started in December and to date 60 FPNs have been issued.  If full payment is not received within 14 days, court proceedings will begin.
