If You Are A Dog Owner – Please Clean Up After Your Dog

We have received a complaint from a concerned villager regarding the increased instances of dog fouling around the village.  Areas mentioned were outside the Village Hall where the school buses pick up / drop off and children need to wait. Also the public footpath across the field off Sands Lane (where we have incidentally sited a dog bin).

 

From Cherwell District Council Website – “If you allow a dog in your charge to foul any area to which the public has access you are committing an offence. The penalty for not clearing up dog fouling can be up to £1000 if the case is dealt with by the magistrates courts, or £50 if the owner is given a fixed penalty notice.

 

We have recently installed dog bins in the village and dog poop bags are also available in the village free of charge.  They can be picked up from a box sited outside The Old Forge on Moor Lane.

Let’s be vigilant to keep our village a beautiful place to live and explore.

Thank you.

In the interests of public safety it will be necessary for Oxfordshire County Council to close the road and impose a ‘No Waiting’ restriction as detailed above in order to facilitate carriageway resurfacing works.

The “No Waiting” restriction means that wherever there are in place yellow “No Waiting” cones, you will not be able to park vehicles on the highway.

Please note that Notices for urgent works can last up to 5 consecutive days only.

Access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles and for those frontages within the closure area, subject to the progress of the works and liaison with the works supervisor.
