dismay at dog fouling along Burnham-On-Sea coast path
dog waste bins are needed along the England Coast Path running through
the Burnham-On-Sea area, one local user has called this week.
Young told town councillors at their latest meeting on Monday (March
6th) that action is needed to reduce dog fouling along the popular
footpath, which opened in Burnham-On-Sea last year.
said that one regular walker had called in at Burnham's tourist
information centre, where she volunteers, and spoke about the "disgraceful
state" of parts of the path.
said how surprised she was that along the coast path between Highbridge
and West Huntspill there are very few dog waste bins," said
considered picked up the dog waste and taking it to a bin but it
was so far to reach a dog bin that she didn't."
Clerk Denise Emery noted there are 60 dog waste bins across Burnham-On-Sea
and Highbridge, and suggested that the matter be considered at the
next meeting of the council's Town Projects Committee.
