Action on litter and dog fouling welcomed

Local Lib Dem councillors have welcomed Sefton Council's decision to help tackle litter and dog fouling on the streets of Churchtown, Crossens and Marshside.

Sefton Council has approved new plans to help tackle litter and dog fouling on our streets and open spaces.

Approval has been given by the Council's Cabinet to start a trial scheme where an outside contractor will be chosen to provide additional enforcement for littering and dog fouling.

Under the scheme, Sefton Council will use an external contractor to undertake patrols across the borough and issue fixed-penalty-notices to anyone caught dropping litter or not picking up their dog's mess.
