Dog fouling

In Blackpool, it is an offence to allow your dog to mess in a public area.

If you are found to not clean up after your dog, you can be fined up to £100 which, if not paid, can rise to a fine of £1,000.

Blackpool Council has made every public bin in Blackpool available to take dog mess so please ensure that you pick it up straightaway and put it in a bin.
