£75 fine for Burnham resident who let their dog foul in town centre

A Burnham-On-Sea resident has been handed a £75 fine after allowing their dog to foul a public area of the town centre.

Sedgemoor District Council’s dog wardens were alerted to a 'dog poo hotspot' in and around Burnham town centre and random patrols were stepped up in the area.

To that end, a resident was issued with a £75 Fixed Penalty Notice this week for failing to remove their dog's mess from a public place in the town centre.

"Sedgemoor’s dog wardens will issue Fixed Penalty Notices to irresponsible dog owners who behave in this anti-social manner, which is unpleasant and unnecessary, affecting other residents and visitors to the district," said spokeswoman Claire Faun.

"With sufficient evidence of dog fouling offences, dog owners will be always be challenged and either fined or prosecuted for non-removal of their dog faeces in a public place."

"Over the past five years, Sedgemoor Dog Wardens have issued 60 fixed penalty notices for dog fouling. " recently reported that traders were upset about dog mess along town centre pavements - see the link below for the full story.
