Dog Fouling

On the 17th July the Borough Council will be launching a dog fouling awareness campaign and with the local Street Champions, they aim to complete the identification and monitoring of incidents within specific areas. This will be timed to be in conjunction with the school holidays,

Something they have trialled successfully, is to spray dog fouling yellow on a daily basis and record the number of incidents per day, initially for a period of 4 weeks. The Street Champions in our Parish have identified areas using their local knowledge and where they feel there is a particular problem. They have volunteered to undertake this work.

For info, I have included the maps of the areas the Street Champions have chosen below.

In high incidence areas the Borough Council will install the “we are watching you” signage to enhance the message. At the end of each week it is proposed that the identified piles will be cleaned up for monitoring to re-commence the following day. The Borough have found this ‘mark up’ approach has successfully raised awareness and has reduced the number of incidents over the period of time.

During this campaign, the Borough will be highlighting through the Councils social media where free dog fouling bags can be collected from. They will also be encouraging residents to report fouling and any other issues within their local environment through the My Telford and Everyday Telford electronic channels.

During September and October the Borough Council also hope to have been successful in our application to work with Keep Britain Tidy and the Dogs Trust in there big Scoop Campaign which will act as a further reminder as the nights begin to close in.

Carriageway Surface Dressing Works

The start date for carriageway surface dressing works in Telford & Wrekin this year will be 27th May 2017. This work will take place across multiple sites around the Borough. These works are expected to be completed by the end of May. A list of sites for this project in your area has been listed below.


o   B4373 Finger Road

o   B4373 Springhill Road

o   B4373 Southall Road


Before the work starts, information boards will be put up in all of the locations and residents will be informed to ensure that disruption will be kept to a minimum, however short term localised road closures may be required for some of the works. This will be localised to areas where it would be impossible to accommodate traffic passing the works. Diversions for these closures will be signed on site.


The majority of the works will be facilitated by the use of stop and go boards or temporary traffic lights.


Works on each site should last for no more than one day.


Further information will be made available once a full programme has been agreed. This will be made available for the public via the council website.


The Principal Contractor for this work will be Telford & Wrekin Services.


I am the Lead Officer for this programme and will be responsible for the works throughout. My contact details can be found below should you have any questions relating to the work.
