Littering and dog fouling survey

Littering and dog fouling survey

A borough-wide review of dog fouling and littering is being undertaken to gain a full
picture of where there are problem spots and how much of a problem it really is.

An online survey has been produced for residents, town and parish councils, schools
and businesses to complete

Visit to provide your comments.

Cllr Ian Devereux, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We get a lot of anecdotal
information about dog fouling and littering, so we are hoping that by asking specific
questions about locations and times of offences we can start to identify where
resources need to be targeted and also what local people can do to help.

“The more surveys that are completed, the better the picture we will get, so I would
urge everyone to fill in the form, tell us what’s happening in their area, and provide
specific locations where possible.”

The survey is open until the end of July. After that the results will be analysed and a
report prepared for consideration by the council’s Environment and Community

Notice of impending explosion noise

RAF Feltwell have informed the Parish Council that between 10am and 4pm today – Wednesday 25th April – demolition explosions will be heard in Feltwell and the surrounding area.
