Report dog in an exclusion zone

The team will investigate the incident and appropriate action will be taken against offenders where possible.  Wherever possible, provide the following information:

  • the day, date, location and time that the incident occurred
  • a description of the person in charge of the dog at the time the incident occurred
  • a description of the dog that they were walking
  • if they arrived in a vehicle a description of the vehicle
  • how far away you were when the incident occurred
  • what kind of view you had

  • any enclosed children's play areas
  • multi-use games areas
  • BMX tracks
  • Green Gyms
  • basketball courts
  • tennis courts
  • 5-a-side

What will happen if you take your dog into an exclusion zone

We have one animal warden who promotes responsible dog ownership.  They can issue fixed penalty notices of £100 for people failing to comply with the order.  This sum is reduced to £80 if paid within the initial ten days of issue.  If the fine is not paid the case will be taken to court.  When an offence is committed, the individual in charge of the dog can be prosecuted and face a fine of up to £1000.
