clean it up campaign

After receiving several complaints from residents, local Councillor for the Eastbourne Ward Kevin Nicholson has launched a campaign to highlight dog fouling in the area.


With the feedback from local people highlighting the hot spots – a temporary chalk sign is added to the payment in the area by Councillor Nicholson. The temporary chalk signs are designed  to highlight the concerns in a particular area and make people aware. (as above)  


Councillor Kevin Nicholson said ‘Id encourage dog owners to pick up after their pets and place the bags in the waste bins provided, as a dog owner myself I know how important it is to  be responsible and look after our area’ 

‘People caught not cleaning up after their pets are liable to be fine or prosecuted’ 


‘This is a simple idea which shows a temporary snapshot of the issues and residents seem to like the idea of a temporary footpath sign’ 


Any resident wanting a sign adding please email kevin.nicholson@darlington.gov.uk
