Public meeting discusses Hawksworth Wood dog fouling

Residents are invited to a public meeting on Tuesday, 8 September, to help tackle dog fouling on the Hawksworth Wood estate.

Dog fouling is one of the biggest causes of complaints from local residents, with Cragside Rec often blighted by irresponsible dog owners not picking up after their pets.

In partnership, Leeds City Council, HAVA (Hawksworth Wood, Abbeydales and Vespers Area), KVCA (Kirkstall Valley Community Association) and the local ward members have worked together to set up a Dog Watch Scheme to help tackle the issue.

The purpose of the meeting is to get residents more involved and look at ways people can help by reporting dog fouling incidents on the estate. Reporting can be anonymous and can lead to owners being fined up to £1,000.

The meetimng starts at 7pm, and will be held at Hawksworth Wood Children’s Centre.
