Mrs Jane Taylor of 47 Chester Close, Shotton was prosecuted by Flintshire County Council at Wrexham Crown Court on Thursday 8 May for failure to remove dog fouling and failure to provide details.

The offences were committed at Field 33 in Shotton in February.

Mrs Taylor pleaded guilty to both offences and was fined a total of £542.60.

Operation Clean Up is the Council’s initiative to target irresponsible dog owners and anyone committing the offences of littering, fly tipping and graffiti.

Prior to this prosecution only seven penalty notices had been issued across the whole of Flintshire.

The area in which the offences took place has been singled out by the council as a hotspot for dog fouling and patrols were reported to have been increased.

We have been monitoring Clwyd Street which is a short walk away, anecdotally residents say they have seen some improvement. 

Councillor Kevin Jones, Cabinet Member for Public Protection, Waste and Recycling, said:

“The on-going campaign of Operation Clean-Up shows Flintshire County Council is determined to clear up the county. There will be fines for people who commit these anti-social offences and if the fines are ignored people will be prosecuted.” 

You can report incidents of dog fouling, littering, fly tipping and graffiti by contacting 01352 701234 or via email: dogfouling@flintshire.gov.uk; please quote times, places and names if possible.
