The whole question of dog poo is kicking off quite a stink, and has been for a couple of years. It occurs to me that there is one simple solution, which has three elements:
- The PC issue a Local Bye-Law prohibiting dogs from using the public right of way located between the Old School and the bungalow.
- The PPC ban all dogs from the Churchyard and Graveyard.
- Lord Reay bans all dogs from the Long Walk.
This would force all dog walkers to use only the public footpaths.
If footpath fouling persists then CCTV cameras, mounted on cooperating houses, are now so cheap that the village footpaths could be monitored 24 hours a day, and the tapes collected via broadband to be checked by one of the many villagers with more than enough time on their hands.
Just a thought!
