From the 1st June, the Town Council is funding a new post entitled, Environmental Enforcement Officer, in partnership with Lancaster City Council.
The post will cover the Morecambe Town Council area only and Phil Bradley who will be undertaking the role will have the powers to issue fixed penalty notices in respect of:
1.Dog fouling not removed by the dog’s owner
2. Dogs not on a lead
3. Dogs on beaches which are not open to dogs
4. Litter dropped in a public place
Phil will patrol the streets of Morecambe.
However, to make his role more effective we require your assistance. The two most common complaints the Town Council receives relate to dog fouling and litter, and hence why the Council has decided to fund this position. However, Phil cannot be everywhere at once. If you are aware of persistent problems in your local area we would like to know. This will allow the Town Council to target problem areas and deal with local issues more effectively.
If you would like to make a complaint about dog fouling or litter please contact the Town Council by telephone on (01524) 422929 or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note this post cannot deal directly with Fly Tipping issues. This is a matter for Lancaster City Council. However, the Town Council would welcome feedback on areas affected by Fly Tipping.
