I’ve just received an e-mail from a local resident regarding dog fouling and I believe it’s a great idea. Although it’s not a solution in itself it does have a number of interesting affects.

The idea is to re-designed the current dog fouling signs to include pictures (in the style of a wanted poster) drawn by local school children in the Fylde. It could be a competition with three or four designs chosen. The competition in itself will generate awareness and educate the next generation of dog owners to pick up, it will also allow the children to act as moral pressure to adults who don’t pick up and it will create a brighter more visible reminder to dog owners.

I’m asking Fylde’s Council Staff and the Cabinet Member, Tim Ashton, to look at the serious implementation of this project.
