Dog fouling

We are currently carrying out some technical changes, meaning some pages are not accessible. We are working to resolve this. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

You can report dog fouling that takes place on public land in Hull.

Landowners are responsible for clearing dog fouling on private land.

What happens next

We investigate reports against people responsible for dog fouling and take action against them if they are able to identify the person who left the dog fouling and they provide a witness statement. If you cannot provide evidence the report is submitted for clearance only. 

On the spot fines and penalties can also be given to an offender with further punishments for a refusal to pay.
