Anti dog fouling

Mar 15, 2021 | Community News, Council News

In the Autumn of 2020, Cornwall Council, in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy ran an anti-dog fouling campaign titled ‘We’re watching you’.  
Cornwall Council plans to run another campaign in the summer.

Appointing a Community Ambassador

As part of our application, the Parish Council would need to appoint a Community ambassador who will champion our ‘We’re Watching You’ campaign in your local community and play a key role in its delivery.

The Community ambassador should:

  • Be a proactive, positive member of your community who feels strongly about tackling dog fouling.
  • Be a resident in your community who is preferably not directly associated with your Town or Parish council (e.g. not an employee or councillor).
  • Have a strong social media presence in your community.

Our Community ambassador would be required to:

  • Conduct an initial cleanse of the site to remove all dog fouls.
  • Carry out two visits to the site, one week apart, before the signs are put up, to count the number of dog fouls for a control figure.
  • Put the signs up in the agreed locations.
  • Carry out a single visit each week for three consecutive months to count the number of dog fouls, cleaning the site of dog fouls after every second visit.
  • Record your weekly counts in the digital monitoring sheet, which will be provided.
  • Champion the campaign on social media and in local newsletters etc:
  • Post updates and images of the signs and any positive outcomes on dog fouling reduction on Community Facebook pages.
  • Share Cornwall Council’s social media updates on the campaign to Community Facebook pages.
  • Contribute articles to the Town/Parish council newsletter to further inform residents of positive campaign activity.
