Councillor: Warden needed to tackle dog mess

A WARDEN should be employed to combat the problem of dog mess in Sonning Common, says a parish councillor.

John Stoves said the police hadn’t prosecuted anyone for dog fouling in public areas because no one had been caught.

The warden would help catch owners who failed to clean up after their dogs and act as a deterrent, he said.

Councillor Stoves told a parish council meeting that the problem was raised in a letter to Sonning Common magazine in 1993 and nothing had changed.

He said: “One of the reasons I came on the council was because I complained about the amount of dog mess and they said ‘come on the council and do something about it’.
