Dog fouling issue in North East Lincolnshire back on the agenda
NEW measures to tackle dog fouling and littering will be considered by North East Lincolnshire Council in a bid to clean up the borough’s streets.
The council’s cabinet will be looking at how the current service can be improved at a meeting on Tuesday.
Their discussions will focus on how the authority can work with the private sector to crack down on littering and dog fouling.
It comes after the Grimsby Telegraph revealed that just £100 had been collected in dog fouling fines – and £900 for littering – in the eight months since the council introduced a “zero tolerance” approach to the problem.

Councillor Peter Wheatley, portfolio holder for environment and regeneration, said: “We take great pride in keeping our streets and neighbourhoods free of litter but are not always able to effectively clamp down on those people who flout the law.
“We need to look into the possibility of working with a private sector firm in more detail, but essentially this could mean a stronger stance taken in issuing fixed penalty notices to people who don’t pick up their litter or clean up after their dogs.”
