Sefton Council’s Community Parks Team, in partnership with the Council’s enforcement contractor NSL, recently visited parks that have been experiencing issues with dog fouling and littering.

On February 28, Council officers spoke to local dog walkers and residents, handing out poop scoop bags and chatting about responsible dog ownership and litter. At Poets Park in Bootle, staff undertook a clean up, removing litter, tipping and dog fouling. Whilst at Broad Hey in Litherland, officers were looking at the possibility of developing a project to engage partners and the local community to tackle the issue of dog fouling, litter and tipping.

The following week, the Community Parks Team also visited Crossens Community Park in Southport in response to reports of high levels of dog fouling at the Park. Again, local dog walkers and residents responded positively to discussions with Council staff.

These sites will be continuously reviewed and the team will be visiting other sites throughout the year wherever a need is identified in partnership with the Council’s enforcement contractor NSL.

The Community Parks Team would like to say a big Thank You to the members of the Crossens Community Association for their kind hospitality whilst they were on site.
