Dog foulers on Burnham-On-Sea beach and Apex Park handed fines

Two dog owners in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge have been issued with fixed penalty notices and fined after allowing their pets to foul public places.

The animals were spotted being walked in Apex Park, Highbridge and on Burnham-On-Sea Beach over the last fortnight.

"The enforcement action emphasises Sedgemoor District Council's commitment for dealing with this type of anti-social behaviour and ensuring that those responsible are appropriately dealt with," council spokeswoman Claire Faun told

Fixed Penalty Notice charges see fines of £50 for payment within a week or £75 within two weeks.

Failure to pay instigates court proceedings where a much larger fine can be awarded.

Residents who are concerned about dog fouling issue in the Burnham or Highbridge area should contact Sedgemoor's Dog Warden on 0845 408 2540 for the matter to be investigated further.
