Seaford councillor Sam Adeniji said posters, warning people to clean up after their dog, will be rolled out across the town.

Cllr Adeniji said Lewes District Council has signed up to the National Dog Fouling poster campaign called ‘We’re watching you’.

The campaign uses a poster campaign to tackle dog fouling hotspots.

He said the posters are hard hitting, visible after dark and use innovative materials.

Cllr Adeniji said he was pleased the campaign had been joined.

He said: “I raised the issue of dog fouling with the Leader of Lewes District Council (LDC) at the last full council meeting in December, I am glad that (LDC) has responded positively by joining the We’re watching you campaign.

“In addition I have requested that LDC Environmental Wardens patrol the worst affected areas in Seaford to ensure that anyone found committing the offence of failing to clear up after their dog is caught and dealt with accordingly.

“Dog fouling is still a key issue in certain areas of Seaford.

“The vast majority of dog owners are responsible people and pick up after their dog, it is a real shame that a few irresponsible owners are spoiling our pavements and parks.

“I hope this campaign, together with proactive action and more local patrols by Environmental Wardens, reinforces the strong message that dog fouling is unacceptable and will help reduce dog mess in Seaford.”
