Last year, the two most common complaints the Town Council received were relate to dog fouling and litter, and hence why the Council has decided to fund an additional Enforcement Officer to deal with litter and dog fouling issues.
The City Council’s Dog Wardens cover the whole district and deal with all kinds of dog related issues, whereas our Environmental Enforcement Officer only deals with below:
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 who is the Environmental Enforcement Officer is often seen patrolling the streets, alleyways and beaches in Morecambe. He is very approachable and extremely helpful.
Phil has the powers to issue on the spot fixed penalty notices and has issued many since last year. Residents have commented on how much cleaner the streets are now.
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 us to target problem areas and deal with local issues more effectively.
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.
