Public meetings on dog fouling

Three public information sessions will be held in the city tomorrow to discuss the problem of dog fouling.

The meetings will have been organised by Sinn Fein councillor Patricia Logue and community group, Triax.

Colr. Logue said: “Sinn Féin activists who carry out community surveys across the city on an ongoing basis have found that the issue of dog fouling is a growing concern for many residents. The mess caused by dog fouling is dirty, smelly and unpleasant, and creates a significant health hazard, especially to children, and brings irresponsible dog owners into conflict with other users of public places.”

The meetings will be held in the Gasyard Centre from 10-11am; Long Tower Centre from 11.30-12.30pm; and Bishop Street Community Centre from 1pm-2pm.

Derry City Council officials and Housing Associations will be in attendance.
