Dog Fouling

Great Torrington Town Council looks after St Michael’s Churchyard and Rack Park.  Recently the Council Technicians have noticed a significant increase in the amount of dog fouling incidents in both of these areas.  

Both of these places are used frequently by the general public and not only does the dog fouling degrade the areas, it is a serious health and safety issue for all, including our Technicians when cutting and strimming the grass.

The Town Council recognises that most dog owners act responsibly but would like to remind the minority to PLEASE pick up after their dogs and dispose of the waste appropriately in one of the many designated bins.  

We would also like to remind dog owners that they are asked to exercise their dogs away from Rack Park – please see the sign below.
