Rhondda Cynon Taf Council awareness events for new dog fouling rules

Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has agreed to introduce harder-hitting rules to tackle the problem of irresponsible dog owners in the County Borough. They will come into force on October 1, 2017.

It will mean dog owners MUST carry suitable means to pick up dog mess, while dogs will be banned from ALL schools, play areas and marked sports pitches maintained by the Council. There will be MORE enforcement officers out and about, and dog owners MUST follow any direction given by them.

Sort **IT Out! dog fouling campaign

As part of the Council’s Sort **IT Out! campaign, a series of awareness-raising events will take place in August and September, to ensure residents know exactly what the new rules are by the time they come into force.
