Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council recently launched a major consultation on tough new powers to clamp down on irresponsible dog walkers.
Please click here for more information about the consultation.
The Council wants to know your views on proposed changes to dog control powers, particularly on the introduction of new dog control offences, placing controls on the use of public spaces by dogs and dog walkers, by making a public space protection order. The Council's aim by proposing these powers is to considerably increase the risks for dog walkers who think it is acceptable not to pick up after their animal.
Please click here to access the Redcar & Cleveland current consultation web page where you will be able to access details about the consultation including consultation documents and also complete the online questionnaire.
Lockwood Parish Council's own campaign to reduce dog fouling has seen the introduction of dog glove dispenser bins at 9 different locations across the Parish over the last 18 months.
A vacancy has arisen on Lockwood Parish Council for the position of Parish Councillor for the Boosbeck Ward. Expressions of interest are to be posted or e-mailed to the Parish Clerk by noon on Friday 5th February 2016. This deadline has now been extended until noon on Thursday 10th March.

Congratulations are once again in order for the village of Moorsholm whose residents and members of Moorsholm in Bloom returned from the Northumbria in Bloom annual awards ceremony on 15th September with the top prize for the second year running.
Moorsholm was the only village representing Lockwood at this year's awards but they have certainly done the Lockwood Parish Council area proud.
Moorsholm was awarded Gold in the 'Village Class' and was also named as the class winner before being named as the 'Best Overall Entry in 2015', beating off competition from Durham City and Corbridge to retain the Percy Boydell Trophy that they won last year. This is a tremendous achievement by Moorsholm in Bloom and everyone who has helped them to achieve this much deserved success.
Other winners included St.Mary's Churchyard which won Gold and was the winner of the 'Best Grounds of a Religious Establishment' category, a Gold in the 'Residential Front Garden' category for Sue Medcalf & John King and a Gold in the same category for Peter & Sheena Smith who were also declared as winners of the class. There was also an Award of Merit for 'Best Contribution to NIB by a Volunteer' which was awarded to Tom Cartwright.
