Message from Cllr Emily O’Brien – Good News on Dog Fouling

Following concerns raised by residents and a similar query from Ringmer Parish Council, it was clarified that dog fouling is no longer a Bye Law. The whole of Lewes District is however covered by a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for dog fouling, which means we could serve a fixed penalty notice on someone for not picking up – the problem though is of course catching them. I am pleased to confirm though that Lewes District Council’s Neighbourhood First Team have agreed to provide extra signage and patrols for Ringmer to help tackle the problem.
