Canterbury City Council have announced a crack down on dog owners who don’t clear up after their pets.

Council Enforcement Officers will be patrolling some of the worst affected areas in the district to catch the minority of owners who don’t do the right thing. Some of the areas in Herne Bay which have been worst affected and will see frequent visits by Officers are the seafront, Hampton, Curtis Wood and Brunswick Square.

The Council are also asking residents to report any other hot spots that need targeting, via their website - www.canterbury.gov.uk

Anyone caught by the enforcement officers not clearing up after their dog will be liable to a £100 fine.
