“We’re watching you” anti-dog fouling campaign 2021

St Dennis


Back in January 2020, Cornwall’s first “We’re watching you” anti-dog fouling pilot achieved an average reduction in dog fouling by 72.5% across eleven hot spots. Now Cornwall Council’s Communities and Public Protection team have launched a brand-new 2021 campaign, targeting seven additional sites across Cornwall.

The successful applicants have each received “We’re watching you” signs to put to the test at their chosen hot spot. The 2021 campaign participants include Kenwyn Parish Council, Porthleven Environment Group, Porthleven Town Council, St Columb Major Town Council, St Ives Town Council, St Just Town Council and St Gennys Parish Council.

The ability of the signs to nudge irresponsible dog owners to “pick up the poo” at their sites is being closely monitored by dedicated community ambassador volunteers through weekly survey visits.

If you would like St Denis Parish Council on the interest register to receive “We’re watching you” signs in the next phase of the 2021 campaign, please email clerk@stdennisparishcouncil.org.uk with your contact details.
