Dog Mess – what’s the Scoop?!


Dear users.
There have been an unusually high amount of comments on our website recently all about Dog Mess.

To let you know, I will take this issue to the Co Group meeting and ask them if they wish to put it on the agenda for the next meeting on the 12th of November.

If you want to come up with any possible solutions to the issue please add these to the Commonplace Map here.

We realise there is a problem right across Lewisham, but to make change we need some ideas of how we can tackle this – so get your thinking caps on. If you want to become a member of the suggested ‘dog mess police’ then volunteer yourself for some rather gross, but important action.

Here is what ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ have to say:
“Dog mess is an emotive issue and one of the most unacceptable and offensive type of litter on our streets. Our research shows dog fouling is the issue the public are most concerned about.

Whether it’s our research-led campaigns, our innovations, our legal advice, or our work with land managers and dog charities we are working hard to tackle the issue.

And we are making a difference. By changing behaviours and creating solutions we’ve helped reduce dog-fouling by up to 77%, helping people feel proud of where they live.

If you want to get a project off the ground, then give them a call and see if they have any ideas for Catford South

Thank you

    Yes I have noticed a large number of comments about DOGSMUCK lately. All over the place Catfordians seem to be talking about it. Is seems to fascinate them. As I said to my neighbour the other day I would rub the dog owners noses in the dogs mess. What else can you do. I thought of recruiting dog muck officers but it would cost a lot money to employ them. Unless you put a bit on the council tax to pay for it. That is worth thinking about. Nose rubbing is the cheapest way. But then who is going to do it? Not your little old lady trying to upend a big brute of a Catfordite. It’s a difficult one. What do you fellow Catfordites think?
