COMMUNITY DOG WARDENS WANTED

 

TDC currently only have 3 neighbourhood enforcement wardens who cover everything from noise nuisance, anti-social behaviour, fly tipping to dog fouling. Information/intelligence is required on who is allowing dogs to foul and not clean up after them, when and where and an enforcement team will come out and patrol at those times and deal with any offences they observe. 

 

TDC is looking to pilot/roll out a dog warden authorisation scheme with any town or parish council. 

 

TDC can authorise non TDC staff to administer fixed penalties for dog fouling and other dog offences covered by their Public Space Protection Order for dogs. 

The fixed penalty for dog offences is £100 (£60 if paid within 10 days).

 

TDC will share any income from the scheme with Town/Parish council where the penalty was issued. There is no expectation that the scheme will become self funding and TDC will not support any quota for fixed penalty notices served.

 

TDC will assist any Town or Parish Council to set up local agreements, help with recruitment and training of potential wardens and/or volunteers, health and safety, fixed penalty procedures and all associated matters. The training is approximately ½ day duration. 

 

Councillors are not permitted to act as Wardens in their own parish due to conflict of interests.

 

A volunteer would patrol with an enforcement warden but will not be authorised to issue a fixed penalty or may patrol on their own in order to gather information/intelligence to pass on to an authorised warden. 

 

Any complaints of dog fouling TDC receive will be forwarded to the Clerk so they can direct their dog warden. 

 

There is considerable outlay by TDC in setting up and supporting the scheme however the potential benefits of this in terms of local warden provision and enforcement is considerable.

 

The scheme should be seen as partnership working between TDC and T/PC’s to try to tackle issues of significant concern within our communities. The pilot will be key to clarifying details of the scheme.

 

Any person interested in becoming a community dog warden or volunteer should contact Janet Williams Environmental Health and Community Safety Manager, Torridge District Council Riverbank House, Bideford EX39 2QG
