How to report dog fouling to Braintree District Council

Dog fouling

Please report any dog fouling incidents to Braintree District Council by contacting the Customer Service Centre (01376 552525) or completing the report a dog fouling offender form.

It is an offence to not clear up after up after your dog forthwith. Any person over the age of 18 found to have committed this offence can be served with a £50 fixed penalty notice. Failure to pay the notice within the required timescale can lead to court action where if found guilty, the offender can be fined up to £100 and pay costs as awarded by the court.

Anyone under the age of 18 may be given a warning and a letter sent to the parents/guardians.

The absence of litter bins and/or dog-waste bins is not a reasonable defence against the offence of littering. There are hundreds of dog poo bins around the district which have been carefully located where dogs are most commonly exercised. If you believe one is required in a particular location, or if you notice one is damaged please contact the customer services team.
