  • This is a massive continuous problem. It seems to be one person doing this, they are dumping there dog waste on the path. This is attracting foxes, and is a massive health hazard as this area has small children walking and playing here.

  • Enforcing against dog fouling is extremely difficult as we have to catch the offender 'in the act'. Signs can deter but are often ignored by those irresponsible enough to let their dogs foul the pavements and parks. If you are able to provide us with any information regarding specific locations, breed of dog, description of owner, timings of offences or any other further information that would be most helpful.

  • This has been ongoing for months. I have tried staying out to catch who ever is doing it. My 2 year old daughter actually picked a bag of dogs poo up whilst playing in the garden last summer of which I had to take her to the doctors to be checked over. I've noticed that there are numerous bags being stuffed into a gap in the fence to my property. Again the foxes are pulling these all over the place and neighbours in Wanstead Road and Wanstead Close/Breckonmead are becoming very concerned and fed up with the mess this person is causing. I cannot get CCTV cameras up because of the distance to WiFi. Its cost me money now to improve the fence which was fine to begin with, the only way of me catching someone is by staying outside 24/7 which isn't plausible by anyone's standards. Again a dog waste bin nearby would help massively. Please can you help, maybe some signs to stop this. It's affecting the way we live in a huge way! Thank you
