DUP councillor Trevor Clarke says he has been approached by people involved in youth football in Coleraine who have pointed out that dog fouling on Council owned football pitches is a becoming a ‘major problem’.

“Contact with dog foul can have serious health impacts, and I want to appeal to dog owners to behave responsibly,” said the DUP man. “I urge dog owners to follow bye-laws and use common sense. Whilst Council Parks’ staff are on site during matches and look out for these issues, I have asked the Council’s Dog Warden to pay particular attention to pitch areas and appeal to the public to report any instances.”
